White Cube celebrates 50 years of the art of Gilbert & George with THE BEARD PICTURES AND THEIR FUCKOSOPHY, a new exhibition spanning all four galleries at Bermondsey.
Gilbert & George appear in THE BEARD PICTURES as looming, otherworldly figures masked by surreal and symbolic beards; referencing beards not only as an emblem of millennial youth, but also as a mark of religious faith and social status.
This new exhibition features more than 40 BEARD PICTURES, including a monumental quadripartite which comprises 4 x 7m wide pictures emblazoned with the words 'SEX', 'MONEY', 'RACE' and 'RELIGION'.
Also on display is THE FUCKOSOPHY, a collection of nearly 4000 pronouncements and mottoes created by Gilbert & George and installed on a large scale in the main corridor and 9x9x9 gallery.
