An extraordinary group of pictures by famed British artists Gilbert & George to be exhibited together for the first time
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’.
Gilbert & George are converting a 19th-century brewery in London’s Spitalfields into their own public gallery.
White Cube are to celebrate 50 years of the art of Gilbert & George with a new exhibition: ‘THE BEARD PICTURES AND THEIR FUCKOSOPHY’
Gilbert & George are showing The General Jungle or Carrying on Sculpting which is comprised of twenty-three monumental, multi-panel pieces.
International household names including Grayson Perry, Maggie Hambling, Oliver Jeffers, Peter Blake, Harland Miller, Gilbert & George and a host of Royal Academicians such as Ken Howard RA, Mick Rooney RA, John Wragg RA, Rebecca Salter RA, Paul Huxley RA and Steven Farthing RA, as well as emerging talent are within the 400 plus postcard sized artworks up for auction.
