Gilbert and George: Dirty Words Pictures
by Michael Bracewell
Publisher's Description
Gilbert and George depicted a hostile, stressful, alien Spitalfields of the late 1970s in their radical series ‘Dirty Words Pictures’. All 26 of the photograph-pictures have been brought together here for the first time. Anxious and dispossessed individuals combine with a careful selection of local graffiti and subdued portraits of the artist duo. Introductions by curator Lisa G. Corrin and Michael Bracewell discuss the work in retrospect, pointing out the contemporary influence this significant series has had on young British artists.
