GILBERT & GEORGE. THE GREAT EXHI­BI­TION

12 February - 5 Septembre 2021
SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE FRANKFURT

Gilbert & George have been creating art together now for over half a century. Their outstanding body of work is still as explo­sive as it is signif­i­cant. As both subject and object of their own work, Gilbert & George form a complete artistic unity that draws no distinc­tion between art and life. As “living sculp­tures,” they embody their art and are both topic and focal point of their large-format collages and screened picto­rial worlds.

Their work revolves around death, hope, life, fear, sex, money, and reli­gion. These are also soci­etal issues, which they depict in all their contra­dic­tions: at once joyful and tragic, grotesque and serious, surreal and symbolic. The duo deal with every­thing that makes us uneasy. Their goal, however, is not to shock, but rather to make visible what is happening in the world, according to their motto “Art for All.” From punks to hipsters, from author­i­ties to outsiders, and from head­lines to adver­tising—Gilbert & George have some­thing to say about it all.
