Exhibition Ended

ARTIST ROOMS: Gilbert & George - Brighton Museum & Art Gallery

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery

From Sat 28 Apr 2018 - Sun 2 Sep 2018

This exhibition has now ended!


Get under the skin of the Turner-prize winning pair Gilbert & George in Brighton.

Artist partnership Gilbert (born 1943) & George (born 1942) have worked and shared their lives together for fifty years. Their playful and ambiguous works on display in Brighton, drawn from the ARTIST ROOMS collection, explore themes essential to humanity and contemporary society including sex, faith, and identity. The artists are not afraid to shock their audience in their determination to present a truthful vision of life. The explicit nature of some of their imagery includes male nudity, sexuality and bodily functions, which some people may find challenging.
