The words of Gilbert & George: with portraits of the artists from 1968 to 1997
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 Spanning nearly three decades, this unique anthology includes previously unpublished texts, passages from the rare editions Side by Side(1971) and Dark Shadow(1974), as well as conversations with Gordon Burn, Shere Hite, Wolf Jahn, Dave Stewart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. Signed and numbered, this slipcased limited edition includes a black-and-white self-portrait by Gilbert & George, which the artists hand-printed in their London studio. Signed and Numbered edition of 300 copies.
