The World of Gilbert & George
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungTakes the reader on a picaresque voyage through the artists' world - a world of extremes, taking in the beauty of nature and the urban landscape, sex and eroticism, religion and spirituality, drunkenness and degradation, fear and human aggression, raucous humour and poetry.
PortraitGilbert & George are among the best-known and most popular of British artists. They met as students at St Martin's School of Art in 1967, and by the early 1970s had become international stars, with exhibitions at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and the Albright-Knox Gallery, Buffalo, USA. Subsequently they have had major exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Fundacio Juan Miro in Barcelona, and in leading venues in Madrid, Moscow, Rome, Beijing, Bologna, Tokyo, and Paris, where their 1997 retrospective at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris had the highest attendance in recent history. Their latest retrospective was at the Centro Cultural de Belem, Lisbon, in January 2002.
