Mid-term response: Gilbert and George
For my mid-term response I decided to focus on the art couple Gilbert and George. In chapter 4 the two artists were briefly touched on and their piece Cool that was a part of their Perversive Pictures exhibition. Cool can be found on pages 194-195 in the class book. In their galleries they have many manipulated photos with hip hop culture being their main influence. Gilbert and George are known to provoke outrage and create photos that confront human issues from daily struggles. The photo I have included in this blog is called The Wall and was created in 1986.
