George and Gilbert the living sculptors - London - Catalogue for their 1973 Australian visit

Gilbert & George

(Sydney). (John Kaldor). 1973
A very good example of the scarce catalogue for Gilbert & George's 'Australian Visit'.

Gilbert & George's Australian exhibition 'The Shrubberies & Singing Sculpture' saw them performing 'Underneath the Arches' at the National Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, the National Gallery of Victoria and John Kaldor Project in Melbourne alongside their large format charcoal work 'The Shrubberies'. This catalogue features spreads that incorporate monochrome images at left of details of 'The Shrubberies' and at right other works and details of works by the artists. With little text - save for reproductions of their own texts and text-based works - it does open with a note of thanks to John Kaldor, 'for his / kind help in making this / exhibition possible'.

[see see 'The Words of Gilbert & George' pp. 306 / 308; Künstler Bücher I, Krefelder Kunstmuseen 1993, p. 69, no.17].
[22 unnumbered leaves]. Square 8vo. (174 x 174 mm). Illustrated throughout with monochrome photographic reproductions of works and details of works by Gilbert & George. Original publisher's cream textured wrappers with printed titles in black to front cover.
