Gilbert & George: London Pictures Preview: Thursday 8 March 2012
White Cube Hoxton Square, 4-7pm
White Cube Mason’s Yard, 4-7pm
White Cube Bermondsey, 6-9pm
‘LONDON PICTURES’ will be exhibited in London as part of a global tour of the pictures. For the first time, White Cube will utilise all three London galleries for a single presentation by an artist. Michael Bracewell describes the works which have been created from nearly 4000 newspaper headline posters as “Dickensian in scope and ultra-modern in sensibility“.
White Cube is to present the ‘NEW NORMAL PICTURES’ by Gilbert & George. This major exhibition brings together 26 new pictures described by the artists as ‘celebratory, crazed and super-modern’.

Ben Brown Fine Arts is to present an extraordinary group of pictures by famed British artists Gilbert & George at the London gallery, exhibited together for the first time from a prominent private collection. After meeting at Saint Martin’s School of Art in London in 1967, Gilbert & George have been creating art together ever since, fully integrating all aspects of their lives into their art, making themselves ‘living sculptures’.
