until 25.08. | #3038ARTatBerlin | Sprüth Magers Berlin presents from 28th April 2021 the exhibition THE PARADISICAL PICTURES with works by the artist duo Gilbert & George. It is the first solo show of the artists in the Berlin gallery.
Sprüth Magers presents a selection of 25 major works from Gilbert & George’s series THE PARADISICAL PICTURES, which marks the artists’ first solo exhibition in the Berlin gallery. Completed in 2019, Gilbert & George’s studies of the relationship between humans and nature here take on new relevance and significance in the current context of the global pandemic.
The show, the artists’ first in the Berlin gallery, presents a selection of 25 works from Gilbert & George’s THE PARADISICAL PICTURES series portraying a psychedelic and fantastical world beyond the streets of their London studio. Completed in 2019 before the current pandemic, their studies of the relationship between man and the natural world have today acquired a new and urgent resonance. Gilbert & George present a vision of paradise, which is ultimately transcendental, an ominous depiction of how we place ourselves in the modern world. Yet, also how we may change for the better.
Starting May 1, the gallery will be open by appointment only. Upon entry, please present a negative PoC test result from an official testing site that is not older than 24 hours and register your visit prior through the Luca App.
At the moment visits by appointment only.
Exhibition period: Wednesday, 28th April – Wednesday, 25th August 2021To the Gallery
