Gilbert & George at the Brooklyn Museum

I saw this exhibit two weeks ago at the Brooklyn Museum and it was incredible. The use of size, color, and images is amazing and worth seeing in person. More below.

The Brooklyn Museum is the final venue of an international tour of the first retrospective in more than twenty years of work by the internationally acclaimed artists Gilbert & George. The exhibition comprises more than eighty pictures created since 1970, among them more than a dozen that are only in the Brooklyn presentation. The exhibition traces their stylistic and emotional evolution through their pictures and art in other media, ranging from charcoal on paper sculpture from the early 1970s to postcard pieces to ephemera dating back to the 1960s.
