Gilbert & George
Francois Jonquet
0714844357
April 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
For the first time Gilbert & George open up and talk at length to the public. In this extraordinarily revealing book, two of the world’s most controversial contemporary artists, who have dubbed themselves ‘living sculptures’, explain and defend their views and actions. These freewheeling conversations are the fruit of over ten years of friendship with the critic François Jonquet, and are distilled from an intensive series of unprecedentedly frank interviews. Candid and uninhibited, Gilbert & George provide a highly entertaining insight into their unique lifestyle, and give a robust exposition of their views on art, life, sex, money, religion and race. Equally revealing are the many illustrations of Gilbert & George’s provocative and controversial works of art.

Memories and Stories of a Madman
George Gilbert
0595138004
Dec 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
George Gilbert's darkly funny novel, Memoirs and Stories of a Madman, is a story within a story of a former feature writer for newspapers who has fallen from grace, ending up a god-forsaken cab driver in San Francisco. His only escape is writing stories about his alter ego, Wolf, a lecher and drunken ne'er do-well, whose many adventures take him to Mexico. There he meets a bevy of sexually insatiable babes and an American movie producer whose appetites are even more prodigious. Along the way, Wolf has a number of encounters with John Wayne, Cary Grant, William Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, and other immortals. Memoirs and Stories of a Madman is uproariously entertaining, a seductive sex farce told with acid wit, imagination, and high style. It also offers an uncompromising look at a decaying...

Obliviously On He Sails: The Bush Administration in Rhyme
Calvin Trillin
1400062888
June 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
There's nothing for improving a satirist's form like having a good target. Case in point: New Yorker regular Trillin, whose earlier verse sampler, Deadline Poet (1994), was mostly less amusing than last year's political cartoons. The present presidential administration, led as it is by the least articulate politician in living memory (as Trillin notes, "W" is no Dan Quayle), seems heaven sent for satire, however, and Trillin rises to its benison. In 12 topical sections, each including a prose page of "backgrounding," as the bureaucrats say, he offers couplets, quatrains, and songs on the Bush-Cheney ticket (remember that movie The Nanny?); the 2000 campaign; the "supporting cast" (from Ashcroft to Boykin to Powell); the administration's corporate-criminal and lobbyist pals; and the many facets of the...

Book Description
This major new monograph on the internationally renowned artists Gilbert & George provides a fascinating insight into their lives and work.

Since first meeting in the St Martin's School of Art in 1967 while studying sculpture, the two artists have become inseparable, living and working together in their home in London's East End.

All their work is based on the idea that they are Living Sculptures, that is, the artwork and they themselves are ultimately one and the same. They have exhibited across the globe, including Europe, the Americas, China and Russia. The book contains selected examples of their oeuvre including 'singing sculptures', 'postcard art' and their large photographic-based works which they call 'Pictures', together with an incisive introductory overview and an interview. Also included...


Introducing Gilbert and George
Robert Rosenblum

Book Description
A lively and intimate look at the career of two of the most influential living artists in the world today. Ever since they met at St. Martin's School of Art in London in 1967, Gilbert & George have worked exclusively together, turning their life into their work, themselves into art. More than thirty-five years later, their large, colorful, multipanel pictures—in which they appear either clothed in their trademark matching suits or completely naked—are instantly recognizable. Celebrated the world over, their work has been the subject of major exhibitions throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia, and it continues to exert an immense influence on generations of younger artists. Eminent art historian, critic, and close friend of the artists Robert Rosenblum looks back at a lifetime of work that has amused...
