Legendary British duo Gilbert & George will discuss their remarkable artistic and personal collaboration over the last thirty-five years, from their early performance pieces to their large-scale photomontages, which have attracted both fierce controversy and enormous acclaim. This event coincides with the release of Gilbert & George: The Complete Pictures, 1971 (co-published by Aperture and Tate Publishing, London), a two-volume set that is the most extensive publication on the artists' work ever assembled, and a major retrospective that will begin at Tate Modern, London, and tour six venues around the world.
