Steve Reich/Gerhard Richter on Wednesday 23rd October 2019

Steve Reich and Gerhard Richter – two giants of contemporary culture – come together in a major new collaboration: a cinematic exploration of Richter’s intense, abstract painting 946-3.

Steve Reich: the composer who redefined the very concept of rhythm – and whose vitality interrogates and transforms everything it touches. Gerhard Richter: a titan of contemporary art, a master of light capable of charging abstract forms with intense emotional power.

Together with Britten Sinfonia they’ve combined original music and digital visuals, algorithmically derived from Richter’s painting, to create an artwork that is boundlessly more than the sum of its parts. ‘A stream of images, its rhythmic flow interpreted by music and, at the same time, a musical composition visualized by film images’ is how Richter describes a collaboration that’s likely to be one of the most significant moments in contemporary art this year.
