Gilbert & George: Utopian Pictures 2015 Singapore Author: Gilbert & George Publisher: Arndt Release Date: 2015 Seller Category: ART MONOGRAPHS Qty Available: 1 Condition: Used: Excellent Sku: 00728 Notes: Oblong 4to, Softcover 9 1/2" 11 3/4," exhibit catalog from 2015 show at Gilman Barracks in Singapore, full-color reproductions of the artists' work, pictorial wraps with French fold, 26 works mean to "bring out the bigot from inside the liberal, and bring out the liberal from inside the bigot." Also includes the installations at eight earlier exhibitions, 550 pp. Gilbert Proesch (1943-) and George Passmore (1942-) met in art school in 1967, and have been making dynamic, confrontational concept and pop art ever since. They invented a now-common trope by painting themselves to look like statues and performing robotic songs as "singing sculptures," blurring the lines between life and art. Their philosophy is that no topic is off-limits, whether it's politics or pooping. They steal from British royal iconography's crests and primary color palettes, stuffy corporate personae, and labor movement imagery. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
