Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 02, 2014
Lehmann Maupin is pleased to present a group of seminal films and video sculptures by pioneering artists Gilbert & George. Among the longest-enduring artist duos, they have had sustained influence on the contemporary art world for the past fifty years. The exhibition Films and Video Sculptures, 1972-1981 will be shown in the gallery’s 201 Chrystie Street location and represents an integral, transitional link between the artists’ early art and their later, more widely known large-scale pictures. This exhibition is the artists’ fifth show with Lehmann Maupin.
