Culture Queen February

Gilbert & George
Son of a God Exhibition
White Cube Gallery Hoxton Square N1

A pleasant saturday lunch preceeded by a stroll around gilbert & George's new exhibition. I am a huge fan of G&G and they certainly didnt dissapoint this time. Fantastic use of colour and a real grandeur to these massive and vibrant works. Whilst the mildly blasphemous nature of these works will add to G&G's repetoire of shock value it should not detract from the really fine wok on dispaly.I especially loved "Mufti" and "Was Jesus a hetrosexual" Unsurprisingly the God Squad are up in arms with Tory MP Anne Widdecombe wading in with her usual brand of subtlety, Gilbert and George, Miss Widdecombe says, are "blasphemous in the extreme, as [they] will find out when finally they stand before the Son of God" I wonder whats hanging on Miss Widdecombe's wall?
