description

Catalogue raisonné edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Inigo Philbrick of the title of works by Gilbert & George. "Gilbert & George Art Titles offers a new spin on the catalogue raisonné: a complete catalogue of the titles of all of the duo's works, from 1970 to the present, collated in the form of a continuous poetical index. Designed by the artists, and typeset in caps, it commences with their first performance at Nigel Greenwood Gallery in 1970, '3 Living Pieces' — flanking the title with the year on the left margin and the acronym 'LS' ('living sculpture') on the right—and, gathering steam, opens out into the more poetical titles for which they are known, such as 'And the Night Presumes Upon the Evening.' The catalogue of works is also printed alphabetically, and each title is identified with an acronym indicating its format, from invitation card to living sculpture. Spanning more than 40 years of exhibitions, pictures, postcards, books and other formats, this volume constitutes an epic of accidental verse." -- publisher's statement.
