GILBERT & GEORGE IN CONVERSATION WITH JONATHAN GRIFFIN   Sprüth Magers Los Angeles   november 16 - november 16 2019

Saturday, November 16, 4PM

Sprüth Magers, Los Angeles 5900 Wilshire Boulevard

On the occasion of Gilbert & George’s exhibition THE PARADISICAL PICTURES at Sprüth Magers, Los Angeles (November 16, 2019 – January 25, 2020), the gallery is pleased to present a conversation between the artists and critic Jonathan Griffin. Since the late 1960s, Gilbert & George have worked together as one artistic entity, conceiving an approach to art-making that explores modern morality, human frailty, the city and the natural world through commonplace yet intensely emotional imagery. Under cover of their deceptively straightforward visual language, they tackle critical, provocative subjects that tap into the deepest drives of contemporary society. Jonathan Griffin, born in London and based in Los Angeles, is a freelance writer, critic and a contributing editor to Frieze magazine. He writes regularly for Frieze, Art Review, Apollo, and the Financial Times, among other publications, and is the author of numerous essays in monographs and exhibition catalogues.
