Produktbeschreibung
Ever since they met at St. Martin's School of Art in London in 1967, Gilbert & George have worked exclusively together, turning their life into their work, themselves into art. More than thirty-five years later, their large, colorful, multipanel pictures--in which they appear either clothed in their trademark matching suits or completely naked--are instantly recognizable. Celebrated the world over, their work has been the subject of major exhibitions throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, and it continues to exert an immense influence on generations of younger artists. Eminent art historian, critic, and close friend of the artists Robert Rosenblum looks back at a lifetime of work that has amused and shocked, but has always sought to address the fundamental concerns and issues of modern society: alcoholism, sex, fear, racial tension, religion, violence, unemployment, and corruption. He considers how in their sculptures, photographic works, drawings, and performance pieces, Gilbert & George have continually shown themselves to be humorous and subversive commentators in the tradition of England's finest socially engaged artists, and he discusses the enduring appeal and impact of their art. Some of the pair's most important works, from the "Singing Sculptures" of the late 1960s to their very latest brightly colored pictures, illustrate Rosenblum's perceptive text, while quotes and statements from the artists provide a fascinating insight into their lives, works, and personalities. Gilbert & George's is a democratic art: they want to make art for everyone and not just an elitist art world. This entertaining book is the perfect introduction to their work.
