Opening Reception and Art Talk: Gilbert & George Paradisical Pictures


Graphic art meets performance art in the prolific work of Gilbert Prousch and George Passmore, partners in art and life. Since the late 1960s, the British duo have worked as one artistic entity, known simply as Gilbert & George, creating mostly large scale photo works known as The Pictures. These often feature themselves in a black and white grid splashed with bright color. Gilbert and George have described their “pictures” as a sort of “visual love letter from us to the viewer” that also explore provocative subjects including religion, patriotism and sexuality.

You can attend the opening of their show at Sprüth Magers on Friday, and then on Saturday join art critic Jonathan Griffin in conversation with the artists.

Seating for the talk is limited; please RSVP by emailing [email protected] or calling (323) 634-0600.

Opening Reception Friday, Nov 15, 6 – 8 pm; Talk Saturday, Nov 16, 4 pm; Exhibition runs through Jan 25.
