Catalogue Gilbert & George – The Great Exhibition
Catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition Gilbert & George – The Great Exhibition (09.13.2019 – 01.05.2007)
A heavily illustrated large format book published on the occasion of a major retrospective from London-based art duo Gilbert & George. The Great Exhibition is designed by the artists themselves and features their trademark style and panache.
For more than five decades Gilbert & George have been creating art that challenges the conventions of art and society with a blatant disregard for any notions of “good taste”. The exhibition catalogue The Great Exhibition treats you to a generous selection of pictures from their lifework. Ever since they met at Saint Martin’s School of Art, Gilbert (b. 1943) and George (b. 1942) have resided in the same London East End neighbourhood. In the catalogue’s interview they tell us, with straightforwardness and wit, the fascinating story of their fifty years together.
Gilbert & George: The Great Exhibition celebrates 50 years of the creative force of nature that is the artistic partnership of Gilbert & George. The exhibition is produced and organized by the LUMA Foundation and Moderna Museet, Stockholm in collaboration with Astrup Fearnley Museet.
