Gilbert & George Day Tripping (again)


Gilbert & George Day Tripping

‘Art for all’ is the belief that underpins Gilbert & George’s art.

Gilbert & George began creating art together in 1967 when they met at St Martins School of Art, and from the beginning, in their films, pictures and ‘LIVING SCULPTURE’ they appeared as figures in their own art. The artists have always addressed social issues, taboos and artistic conventions.

The backdrop and inspiration for much of their art is the East End of London where Gilbert & George have lived and created art for over 50 years. From street signs to drug paraphernalia, chewing gum stains on pavements to vistas of urban grandeur and decay, their work is both an ongoing portrait of a city and a reflection on the human condition. Gilbert & George confront fundamental issues of existence: sex, religion, violence, hope, fear, racial tension, patriotism, addiction and death.
