Gilbert & George met in 1967 at St Martins School of Art. A living sculpture, and by now living icons for successive generations of artists in Britain and abroad, G&G received the Turner Prize in 1986, and represented UK at the Venice Biennale in 2005. Their retrospective, Major Exhibition at Tate Modern in 2007 was also exhibited around Europe and America. Their art transcends cultural boundaries and has shown in many countries, with ground-breaking shows in Russia and China. They live and work in London.
