We will be live streaming the sold out event on our Facebook page.
In celebration of 50 years of the art of Gilbert & George and the White Cube exhibition GILBERT & GEORGE: THE BEARD PICTURES AND THEIR FUCKOSOPHY, the artists join writer, novelist and cultural commentator Michael Bracewell in conversation at Hoxton Hall, London.
The talk is followed by a book signing of the Gilbert & George exhibition catalogue. Copies are available to purchase on the evening.
Michael Bracewell first saw the art of Gilbert & George in 1977. He met the artists twenty years later and has been a friend ever since, writing extensively about their art and interviewing them many times. He is a contributor to The Burlington and Frieze and his new book ‘What is Gilbert & George’ is published by Heni in November 2017.
