Brit Art icons Gilbert & George reveal the largest exhibition of their work today at the Tate Modern, with graphics by Rose Design.
Gilbert & George have created art together since 1967. They made a declaration that sculpture need not be confined to the production of three-dimensional objects and that their own lives could be classed as ‘living sculptures’.
The Gilbert & George Major Exhibition begins with a documentation of the Living Sculptures, as well as the Nature Pieces. It ends with the controversial Sonofagod Pictures including Was Jesus Hetrosexual?, which has led to accusations of blasphemy.
Rose Design was appointed to the graphics work last summer, without a pitch, being one of the five consultancies on the Tate Modern’s design roster.
Additionally, the consultancy has worked with the artists on a catalogue, marketing materials, DVD packaging for their film The World of Gilbert & George and accompanying guides for the show itself.
