'Art for all' is the credo of Gilbert and George. United by their disdain for the formalist approach to sculpture, Gilbert and George met as college students at the St Martins School of Art, and have been living and creating together ever since. Their increasingly formal appearance marked by matching tweed suits juxtaposed with their loud, provocative, brightly-coloured artwork is what cultivates the distinctive public persona–Gilbert and George. Having explored many facets of human existence through their work including sex, religion, corruption, racial tension, addiction and death, they believe that art in every form exists to provoke thoughts.
Join us in conversation as they speak to Shilpa Vijayakrishnan about their ever-expanding practice, distinctive style and approach to confronting a breadth of societal issues through their work.
