Gilbert & George

Photos from Designboom.

Gilbert & George: OH GOD they are the cutest.

Those matching ties turn me into a puddle of I-want-to-be-your-best-friend-oh-please-oh-please.

Designboom ran a story about a show -- Jack Freak -- of G&G's in Brussels that just closed. The Jack Freak photos and article can be found here.

I am simultaneously intrigued and bored by their recent work. Conceptually, I really like the images, but I'm really not into that plastic, digital, just-discovered-Photoshop aesthetic. The Gilbert & George show at the Milwaukee Art Museum last year was really quite good, despite my reservations, but I liked it more because I could see their earlier work in comparison with the new stuff.
