Gilbert & George at the Tate Modern

Yes, we knew about this and hadn’t said anything…yet.

But the Gilbert & George : Major Exhibition at the Tate Modern in London is quite a cause celebre as most of the hipper folks we know in the UK have ventured forth to take in this massive exhibit. And all leave with some souvenir of this work. The book set is on it’s way to our office now.

Who are they ,you ask ( well, the uninitiated) ?

From the site:

“Gilbert & George place themselves, their thoughts and their feelings at the centre of their art, and almost all of the images they use are gathered within walking distance of their home in London’s East End. Yet their pictures capture a broad human experience, encompassing an astonishing range of emotions and themes, from rural idylls to gritty images of a decaying London; from fantastical brightly-coloured panoramas to raw examinations of humanity stripped bare; from sex advertisements to religious fundamentalism.”

But your best bet is going to the site and play each and every video.
Brilliant!

Cheers!
