Gilbert & George: Art Exhibition
Nouveau Musée National de Monaco - Villa Paloma, Monaco
June 14-November 2, 2014
Nouveau Musée National de Monaco (NMNM) presents a major exhibition of the art of Gilbert & George. Forty-six historical and recent pictures tracing more than 40 years of creation will be shown in a presentation designed by the artists on the three floors of Villa Paloma. This unique exhibition comprises pictures from a single private collection of a family based in Monaco. The works fall into a theme repeatedly addressed by the NMNM, that of a “built” landscape, subject of analysis and interpretation for a society that constantly changes. Through this selection, each viewer will see how the art of Gilbert & George comprises both a world of its own – intense, frightening, lonely, loving, abject, joyous, struggling, defiant, crazed, still, contemplative, vertiginous, desiring, modern – and a view of the past, present, and future world.
