Gilbert & George

£45.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

In excellent condition, this copy includes exhibition preview booklet for the 2006 Gilbert & George 'Was Jesus Heterosexual?' exhibition (photo ).
Signed by the artists!
"This major study of internationally renowned artists Gilbert and George provides a fascinating insight into their lives and work. Since first meeting in the St. Martin's School of Art in 1967 while studying sculpture, the two artists have become inseparable, living and working together in their home in London's East End. All their work is based on the idea of 'living sculptures', i.e. the artwork and they themselves are one and the same.
The book contains seleted examples of their entire oeuvre including 'singing sculptures', 'postcard art' and their large photographic-based works which they call 'Pictures', many of which have never been published or have rarely seen. Robin Dutt illuminates their work with an incisive introduction and overview of their themes and ideas, including an interview with the artists. Also included are unpublished examples of their working drawings, exhibition plans and designs, and photographs from their personal social archives.
This essential guide demonstrates how Gilbert & George have influenced a generation."
