Gilbert & George 'The Great Exhibition' at Moderna Museet Stockholm

Gilbert & George

The Great Exhibition

Stockholm, 9.2 2019 – 12.5 2019

Since Gilbert (b. 1943) and George (b. 1942) met at Saint Martin’s School of Art in London in the 1960s, they have formed an indivisible artistic team. As both the subject and object of their own art, Gilbert & George have unreservedly dedicated their life together to art. Sex, money, ethnicity, social status, and religion are recurring themes in pictures that successfully unite comedy with tragedy, desperation, courage, and depression. Throughout their career they have created works that completely disregard popular conceptions of “good taste” and challenge conventions in society and in the art world. The Great Exhibition is a retrospective of works from Gilbert & George’s five decades together.

Curators: Daniel Birnbaum and Hans Ulrich Obrist
