Gilbert & George – The Great Exhibition at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt
It’s been a long time coming, but thanks to a great collaboration between the LUMA Foundation, the Modern Museet Stockholm and the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, The Great Exhibition has been showing at the Schirn until the 5th of September’21. This brilliant retrospective, showing works from 1071 – 2019, was a huge success, cementing the international fame of Brit Artists Gilbert & George again as sharp tongued observers of our society, life and history!
This incredible show is of particular interest to our presenter Claudia Peifer, as the first exhibition she ever saw, having set foot on British soil many moons ago, was indeed by Gilbert & George, who at the time were showing at the Hayward Gallery within the Southbank Centre in London. For the two gents to have made it to her home town in 2021 is indeed something she’s thrilled about.
G &G’s works need no introduction, as they represent so many issues of our modern life, that they easily transcend borders and indeed language(s). You’ll need to equip yourself with humour and understanding in order to not be intimidated, either by the subject matter or the size of their works, but provocation & criticism is precisely where the importance of their works lies buried. Open mindedness is an overall requirement, which is why, we think, their work is so timeless, other than being so impressive.
If you couldn’t make it to this blockbuster, watch our round-up now and stay tuned for more information about the next stop of this brilliant show
