Art emerges from the lockdown: Gilbert & George’s provocations in Locarno

Art for All is the slogan that characterizes the artistic work of Gilbert&George, a duo of contemporary artists united in life and profession convinced that their lives and their art are inseparable.

Gilbert&George, express their art by mixing performance, sculpture and pop graphics in a unicum accessible to all.

60 impressive and disruptive canvases, divided into five groups, review the works created between 2008 and 2016, including Beard Pictures, where Gilbert&George are depicted with the face and body of a bright red, shaded and inscrutable eyes, surrounded by barbed wire fences, often in front of a black background that evokes emptiness.

Not to mention the collection of journalistic “screams” with London Pictures, which report announcements of violence, passion, squalor and greed, alongside the portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, taken from a coin.

Each canvas is pure tension and defines man as a simple voyeur of his solitude and the world. Gilbert&George‘s canvases reflect human destiny with cynical despair, transforming each room into a large fresco with violent colors and giving life to a fascinating and engaging experience.
