Gilbert & George Tea with Julia
Gilbert & George invited Julia Peyton-Jones to their house in East London where they live and work. The artists conducted a tour of their studio presenting models and catalogues of two of their current exhibitions, describing how they make their pictures in addition to showing their work in progress on their latest series entitled ‘The New Normal’ as well as other projects which are underway.
The conversation covered the artist’s work over nearly six decades since their meeting in 1967 as students at St. Martin's School of Art. Working under the credo 'Art for All', Gilbert & George maintain that their art and life are inseparable. Gaining critical acclaim for their legendary performance 'The Singing Sculpture' in 1970 they have created a body of work which consistently reflects the world around them and the time in which it was made.
