New Horny Pictures

Very Good. Item #9965

London: White Cube 2, 2001. First Edition. Oblong Quarto (30x42cm); unpaginated, but the number was texted to us: [12pp]. Sixteen works reproduced in full color.

Saddle-stapled giant brochure-catalog of the exhibition of the same name shown at the London gallery White Cube Hoxton Square from 2 June to 15 July 2001. Signs of polite perusal, but altogether clean and bright; pages unmarred and unmarked.

For this exhibit, Gilbert & George compiled tables of gay male personal ads arrayed in rows. Only G&G know how fictive the ads may not be. They begin as mechanical, repetitive Bergsonian comedy but add up to a tender, ongoing recognition of the humanity of the whole personal ads process.

Gilbert & George appear throughout as stiff doyens of the entire enterprise. They are astute marketers, having calibrated their compilation to be polite enough that you need not hide it when the in-laws come.

Price: $100.00
