Item Description...
Gilbert & George are among the foremost artists of their generation. A collaborative team, they were early to explore performance as an art form, and early to explore the idea that every aspect of daily life could be classed as such. They were early to mingle photography and graphics in a style reminiscent of advertising, and early to address sexual identity in that work. In fact, they were early to do much that viewers now take for granted. Their work has been exhibited worldwide since the beginning of the 1970s, and is either unusually accessible or completely unpalatable, depending on the viewer's mindset. It has attracted both fierce controversy and enormous acclaim, including the 1986 Turner Prize and the U.K.'s slot at the 2005 Venice Biennale. At last, on the fortieth anniversary of their meeting (September 25, 1967, Saint Martin's, London) and on the eve of a major retrospective that will tour six venues around the world-including Tate Modern, the Brooklyn Museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum and the de Young Museum in San Francisco-here is a book that does justice to the scale, depth and ambition of their artistic achievement. Or rather, here are two books: designed and produced by the artists, this luxurious two-volume hardback set, which comes in a customized carrying case with handles, documents every picture the pair has created over the course of their 35-year career.With details and installation views of many significant pieces, it includes 1500 color illustrations. The Complete Pictures will be the most thorough and extensive publication on the artists' work ever assembled. Copublished with Tate Publishing, London.

Reviews - What do our customers think?

I had been vaguely aware of Gilbert and George for some time now, seeing the odd piece here and there, and I'd always been curious to see more. Well, here is more Gilbert and George than you could ever want. WAY more.

They have essentially found _one_ particular style of artwork that they're good at (large scale photo collages broken down into separate framed pieces) and worked it to death. They've done the same thing for almost 40 years ... the main thing thats changed has been the progression from Black and White, to Black White and Red, to a rainbow of bright colors.

In terms of content they've gone from pieces about being drunk, to nude self portraits (let's not go there), to pieces full of dirty words, bits of the bible, personal ads, and _lots_ of body fluids and solids.

I'm not a prude. I can appreciate artists who use push the boundaries but do we really need large scale images of the artist's bowel movements? It's not so much gross as it is ... just stupid. It's like they're desperately trying to be "daring". They try so hard to shock the viewer! What a waste of effort (no pun intended).

The collection itself is beautifully done ... 2 volumes, beautifully printed and packaged. I just wish I'd waited a couple of years for a severely edited (much slimmer) volume of their best works.
