About the exhibition

This retrospective shows Vjenceslav Richter’s architectural and artistic work from 1947 to 2002 in the context of European art history. Richter’s work has never presented in its entirety to date, only partially in the form of solo exhibitions. Single graphic works were exhibited, however, in many group- and theme-related exhibitions, both here in Austria and abroad. Richter’s works were frequently on show in Graz, as part of trigon 67, trigon 75, a solo show, and numerous collection exhibitions, in which his works from the Neue Galerie’s collections were shown.

The starting point for Richter’s work is the synthesis and synthetical approach that was woven into every segment of his work, into the sphere of the theoretical thinking, and into his experimental research activity. Here, this process of exploring the synthetical potential in the area of fine arts is examined. It shows an overview of Richter’s works – from the first architectural blue phases for exhibition pavilions to the painting and sculpture, to his architecture and to visionary urban-based projects. Works are shown from the Richter collection, from several regional museum collections, as well as from private collections.
