Gilbert & George at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Salzburg will show a group of pictures from the latest series by the English artists Gilbert & George. Gilbert & George have spent many years preparing these London Pictures, which mark a new period in their work. They took thousands of photographs documenting a widespread peculiarity of the press landscape in England: posters with sensational headlines advertising the newspapers on sale in kiosks. They are like heralds blaring out fanfares, titillating public curiosity about the most outrageous and brutal stories of the day. London Pictures will be on view January 19, 2013 at Galerie Thaddaeus, Mirabellplatz 2, 5020, Salzburg Austria
