  • Gilbert & George: Scapegoating Pictures for London
    July 8, 2017 - September 24, 2017
    Ludwig Múzeum – Museum of Contemporary Art
    Komor Marcell u. 1
    Budapest, Hungary

    Working together for nearly 50 years now, the artist duo originally gained world fame with their hand-painted photo-based artworks. Their art practice blurs the boundaries of private life and creative life, and most often the protagonists of their works are themselves, their main theme being modern-day urban existence. The series Scapegoating Pictures represents a fast, ever so technology-based, multicultural world, in which paranoia, fundamentalism, religion, and victimized existence emerge.

  • GILBERT & GEORGE ART EXHIBITION
    June 14, 2014 - November 2, 2014
    NOUVEAU MUSÉE NATIONAL DE MONACO — VILLA PALOMA
    Monaco

    In a presentation designed by the artists, NMNM presents a major exhibition looking back on more than 40 years of Gilbert & George’s art.
    The exhibition will allow visitors to experience an art that is both deeply rooted in our own constantly changing society, while also comprising a world of its own—an intense, frightening, lonely, loving, abject, joyous, struggling, defiant, crazed, still, contemplative, vertiginous, desiring, modern world.
    Gathering 46 works selected from the collection of a family based in Monaco, this unique exhibition looks at the notion of the "built" landscape as subject to analysis and interpretation, a theme repeatedly addressed by the NMNM.
