Gilbert & George, "Films and Video Sculptures, 1972–1981"

Art, Film and video Free
Before the large-scale photos they're known for, Gilbert & George, the Brit duo distinguished by their matching Edwardian suits, worked primarily as performance artists in the ’60s and ’70s, billing themselves as "living sculptures." They also created videos, though not in the way the medium was usually employed, i.e., for performance documentation. Rather, they played directly to the camera to create video sculptures, as they called them. The show presents prime examples along with a feature-length 1981 film written and directed by the artists.
