The first United States retrospective of the work of contemporary German artist Andreas Gursky presents some forty works surveying his achievement from 1984 to the present. Gursky's large color photographs present a stunning and inventive image of our contemporary world. His adventurous mixture of contemporary subjects, saturated color, large scale, rich detail, bold abstraction, visual wit, art-world savvy, photographic spontaneity, and flamboyant digital tinkering—all in the service of a polished, signature style—have made his work one of the most distinctive and challenging contributions to contemporary art.
