Gilbert and George: NEW NORMAL PICTURES room 1 of 2
End Date: 01/05/2021
For Gilbert & George, the ‘new normal’ is a stand in for the word ‘existential’, where a sense of normality is constantly being renewed. In creating these pictures, the artists continue the visionary and moral journey they began as students in the summer of 1967 – likened to a Pilgrim’s Progress – walking our world over to feel alive and to find new ways to combat prejudice and discover new freedom.
White Cube is pleased to present the ‘NEW NORMAL PICTURES’ by Gilbert & George. This major exhibition brings together 26 new pictures described by the artists as ‘celebratory, crazed and super-modern’.
