GILBERT and GEORGE (Gilbert Proesch, b. 1943, Italy; George Passmore, b. 1942, UK)

'The Words of Gilbert & George'

SIGNED Out-of-Print Import Monograph

Edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Robert Violette. Publ. by Violette Editions, London, UK, 1997. Hardbound, 312 pp., 64 pp. of plates, illus. (some col.), bib. notes, index. Boldly SIGNED 'With love from Gilbert & George' in red marker on first page. Printed and bound by Grafiche Milani, Milan, Italy. Dimensions: 9-1/2" x 6-1/2" x 1-1/4". Very Good / Excellent Condition.

The notoriously controversial statements, writings, manifesto art works and interviews of British duo Gilbert & George are collected here for the first time. Spanning nearly three decades, this unique anthology includes previously unpublished texts, passages from the rare editions Side by Side (1971) and Dark Shadow (1974), as well as conversations with Gordon Burn, Shere Hite, Wolf Jahn, Dave Stewart, and many others. More than 25 years of portraits of the artists by notable photographers such as Cecil Beaton, David Bailey, and Wolfgang Tillmans accompany the texts. This is a delightful compendium, revealing these artists' prodigious talent for creating paradoxes which, surprisingly, bring hope and passion to our century's neon rush.

Gilbert and George are amongst the greatest living artists in the UK or abroad. Since the 1970s, alongside Andy Warhol, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter and others, they have influenced past and current generations of British artists including Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and the Chapman Brothers (who in fact used to work for Gilbert & George). In 2007, they will hold what will be the largest ever exhibition at Tate Modern, London devoted to work by a 'single' artist'.

Gilbert Proesch was born in 1943 in the Italian Dolomites. He studied at the Wolkenstein School of Art and Hallein School of Art, Austria and the Akademie der Kunst, Munich. George Passmore was born in 1942 in Devon, England. He was schooled at the Dartington Adult Education Centre, Devon; Dartington Hall College of Art; and the Oxford School of Art. Gilbert and George met while students at the St. Martin’s School of Art, London in 1967, and have lived and worked together in London since 1968.

Moving to the working-class neighborhood of Spitalfields in London, Gilbert and George revolted against art’s elitism, naming their house “Art for All” and declaring themselves “living sculptures.” Although their early work centered around Performance, the artists soon turned to video, photography, and drawing. As early as 1969, the artists were given an exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, and by 1972–73 were frequently showing with prestigious galleries like Anthony d’Offay Gallery, London, Sonnabend Gallery, New York, and Galerie Konrad Fischer, Düsseldorf. Their use of black-and-white photographic assemblages first surfaced in 1971 and by the late 1970s had developed into gridlike photo combinations. The duo was invited to participate in Documenta in Kassel in 1972, 1977, and 1982. In 1980, the Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, organized a mid-career retrospective of the artists’ work, which traveled to the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Kunsthalle Bern, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and Whitechapel Art Gallery, London.

In the first years of the 1980s, Gilbert and George added a range of bright colors to their photographs, emphasizing their slick, stylized, and cartoonlike appearance. The content of the work of this period centered around urban life and the hope and fear associated with modern society. In 1986, Gilbert and George were awarded the Turner Prize, and in 1987 had a major exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, London. In 1989, Gilbert and George exhibited 25 large pieces dealing with illness and destruction at Anthony d’Offay Gallery for an AIDS charity organization. The following year, the artists created The Cosmological Pictures, which toured ten different European museums from 1991 to 1993. Gilbert and George also exhibited in Moscow in 1990. In 1992, their largest production ever, New Democratic Pictures, was exhibited at Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Aarhus, Denmark. This was followed by a solo exhibition at the National Art Gallery, Beijing, and the Art Museum, Shanghai, in 1993. In 1994, the artists were given an exhibition at the Museo d’Arte Moderna, Lugano, Switzerland.
