Gilbert & George : obsessions & compulsions by Robin Dutt( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This major study on internationally renowned artists Gilbert and George provides a insight into their work and lives. Since first meeting in the St. Martin's School of Art in 1967 while studying sculpture, the two artists have become inseparable, living and working together in their home in London's East End." "Robin Dutt illuminates their work with an incisive introduction and overview of their themes and ideas, including an interview with the artists. Also included are unpublished examples of their working drawings, exhibition plans and designs, and photographs from their personal social archives."--Jacket
Intimate conversations with François Jonquet by Gilbert( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time Gilbert & George open up and talk at length to the public. In this extraordinarily revealing book, two of the world's most controversial contemporary artists, who have dubbed themselves 'living sculptures', explain and defend their views and actions. These freewheeling conversations are the fruit of over ten years of friendship with the critic Francois Jonquet, and are distilled from an intensive series of unprecedented frank interviews. Candid and uninhibited, Gilbert & George provide insight into their unique lifestyle and working methods, and give a robust exposition of their views on art, life, sex, money, religion and race. Equally revealing are the many illustrations, which comprise a retrospective of their finest and most powerful work, including new pictures published here for the first time, and also an illuminating selection of new and old documentary photographs."--Jacket
Barry Flanagan : early works 1965-1982 by Barry Flanagan( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barry Flanagan was one of Britain's most original and inventive artists and a key figure in the development of British and international sculpture. He is best known for the large-scale bronze hare sculptures that he began producing in the early 1980s and that can be seen in many galleries and public spaces around the world. The success of these pieces has tended to obscure the equally important and very different work that characterised his early period. Made from materials as varied as cloth, plaster, sand, hessian and rope, these works highlight a concern with material properties and processes - a concern that is at the heart of his practice. A contemporary of Gilbert & George, Flanagan studied sculpture at St Martin's School of Art from 1964 to 1966. The exhibition takes this period as a starting point and reveals the impact of this early work on his later development towards casting in bronze, which he began in 1979. This is the first major retrospective of Flanagan's work in London since 1983, and by focusing on his early works, shows how this radical and imaginative artist challenged the very nature of sculpture in his time."--Publisher's website
Gilbert & George : the Singing sculpture by Carter Ratcliff( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Publishers Weekly In their paintings, sculptures, photo-pieces and performances, the British duo Gilbert & George have proven themselves witty, subversive social commentators. This oversize, profusely illustrated album documents The Singing Sculpture , a performance piece in which Gilbert & George--impeccably dressed, their faces and hands splotched with metallic paint--stand on a table and impersonate automatons who repetitively croon a Depression-era music-hall song about two London tramps. The duo baffled and entranced New York City gallery-goers with this "living sculpture" in 1971 and again in 1991. Art historian Rosenblum interprets the piece as a commentary on homelessness, poverty and the mechanization of popular entertainment. Ratcliff, contributing editor of Art in America , provocatively presents Gilbert & George as didactic artists who celebrate the world and who attempt to awaken each member of their audiences to his or her true individuality. This is the first title from a new publisher, and it's a stunner. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc."--Amazon

Tim Marlow with Gilbert & George( Visual )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this fresh and revealing film the self-proclaimed living sculptures Gilbert & George join Tim Marlow in a walk around their "Major Exhibition" at Tate Modern. They discuss humanity, sex, death, race and religion; their love of the city and their dislike of the countryside. They explain how they go about creating their art, their iconic dress sense and their tricky relationships with the art establishment and the media. Gilbert & George have always pushed at the boundaries of art and society. Their pictures are provocative, disturbing and profoundly moving. Their art confronts life in the vibrant, seductive, tense London metropolis. This film is a fascinating insight into their world and an important document of their motivation and consequent art

The secret files of Gilbert and George by Hans Ulrich Obrist( Visual )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in French and English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilbert Proesch and George Passmore met as students in 1967 and have been working together ever since. Italian and British respectively, they are known by a combination of their first names and have always put themselves at the center of their art. For the last 40 years, Gilbert & George have spanned the international art scene with as much insolence as elegance. This interview by modern art curator Hans Ulrich Obrist focuses on Gilbert & George's archiving system. In it, they discuss not only what they keep (all of their own images, plus all articles in the media about themselves), but how it is ordered (images are coded by color) and their observation on the headlines they are afforded, and what they say about the times in which they were written
