Gilbert & George: The Early Years

May 9 – September 27, 2015

Since the beginning of their collaboration, in the late 1960s, British sculptors Gilbert & George have aimed to become the work of art—elevating their daily activities to expressions of creativity and casting themselves as “living sculptures.” The exhibition Gilbert & George: The Early Years builds upon MoMA’s extensive holdings of the artists’ dynamic work, focusing on their career from 1969 to 1976. The first American museum show in over 30 years dedicated to this defining decade in their production, the installation features two major, large-scale “Charcoal on Paper Sculptures”: To Be With Art Is All We Ask (1970), and The Tuileries (1974). The exhibition also incorporates ephemeral materials and video works drawn from the collections of multiple Museum departments.
