Launching Tonight at BPL Presents

In an irony lost on neither participant, Robert Storr and I found ourselves discussing works by Gerhard Richter that are intimately concerned with painting’s fraught relationship with photographic mediation, while looking at a checklist of his current show at The Met Breuer on a shared Zoom screen. Rob had seen the show in its brief outing before shuttering due to the coronavirus crisis; I alas did not. But I did see the landmark 2002 retrospective Robert Storr curated at the Museum of Modern Art, so I was well primed for my dialogue with him, on a screen all too near you.

Wishing all our readers safety and comfort and tolerable intellectual stimulation.
