White Cube is pleased to announce an exhibition of new pictures and two special events with Gilbert & George in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Shown in the US for the first time, ‘THE CORPSING PICTURES’ are the most profoundly personal and confrontational art created by Gilbert & George to date.
To celebrate their return to Florida, Gilbert & George will host an evening reception at White Cube West Palm Beach on Thursday 20 April 2023, followed by a public ‘In Conversation’ at the Norton Museum of Art on Friday 21 April 2023 with curator Michael Rooks (Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, High Museum of Art). The event at the Norton marks almost 40 years since Gilbert & George’s eponymous solo exhibition at the museum in 1984.
‘THE CORPSING PICTURES’ will also be on show at White Cube Mason’s Yard, London, to coincide with the unveiling of the artist’s long-awaited art space, The Gilbert & George Centre. Located in Spitalfields, East London, where they have lived and worked for over 50 years, The Gilbert & George Centre opens to the public on 1 April 2023.

- The Gilbert & George Centre, registered charity number 1174981, is located on Heneage Street, just off Brick Lane in the heart of London’s East End. Founded in 2017 by Gilbert & George to create a permanent exhibition space for the artist’s legacy and intended to enrich London’s cultural offering, the Centre is committed to being accessible to everyone in the community. The Centre does not intend on maintaining the gallery in a ticket price, in keeping with the Gilbert & George’s ethos ‘Art for All’, but donations from visitors and interested parties will always be gratefully accepted and will always be applied to the running and upkeep of the Centre. The Gilbert & George Centre will initially open Friday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm with additional opening days extending into 2023.
- The Gilbert & George Centre is designed by SIRS ARCHITECTS, an award winning & design-led boutique studio based in London & Vienna.
