Gilbert & George’s exhibition titled ‘The Great exhibition’ shows early works and newer work which I have seen for the first time in 1999 at Milton Keynes Gallery when they were presented to the public in this newly inaugurated art space.
Briefly I got introduced to the artists who are definitely an artist duo attracting attention alone with their appearance alone. Being in their company I could compare to meeting the artist duo Eva & Adele only that Gilbert & George are very particular due to their gentlemen-like outlook and behaviour.
After that I have seen their work at Jay Joplin’s White Cube Gallery and the screening of their very early movies at Lux Gallery after the opening of their solo show.
Documenting Gilbert & George’s exhibition in Reykjavik Art Museum I took some time to photograph & filmic footage and when nearly through I noticed that there was something essential missing, their early video work, which in my opinion is key to understand their working approach putting themselves in the centre of their work basically portraying themselves very intimate and from a personal angle.
Their early video work gives access to their working approach and in my view is essential to a retrospective of that vastness.
Please find below a video tour through the exhibition:
Gilbert & George are represented by Lehmann Maupin Gallery, New York which I work for as an Art Consultant.
