About This Book

Gilbert & George Art Titles offers a new spin on the catalogue raisonné: a complete catalogue of the titles of all of the duo's works, from 1970 to the present, in the form of a continuous poetical index. Designed by the artists, it commences with their first performance at Nigel Greenwood Gallery in 1970, "3 Living Pieces"--flanking the title with the year on the left margin and the acronym "LS" ("living sculpture") on the right--and opens out into the more poetical titles for which they are known. The catalogue of works is also printed alphabetically, and each title is identified with an acronym indicating its format. Spanning more than 40 years of exhibitions, pictures, postcards, books and other formats, this volume constitutes an epic of accidental verse.

Gilbert & George

Gilbert & George are an influential collaborative artist duo. Best known for their distinctive brightly colored photo collages, they describe their art as living sculpture. Mostly comprised of large-scale photographs, their oeuvre spans the subjects of traditional black-and-white photography, queer culture, and ultra-violence. Indebted to Pop Art, Conceptualism, and performance art, their work went on to influence the art of the Young British Artists, including Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin. Gilbert Prousch born on September 17, 1943 in Martin Tor, Italy and George Passmore born on January 8, 1942 in Plymouth, United Kingdom, met and fell in love in 1967 while studying at Saint Martin's School of Art in London. The artists have enjoyed decades of critical and popular acclaim, including a retrospective at the Tate Modern in London and representing the United Kingdom at the 2005 Venice Biennale.
