Gilbert & George: The Great Exhibition, 1971-2016

At a time when Gilbert & George have decided to put an end to their artistic production and reflect on their one-of-a-kind half century collaboration, Luma Foundation presents a major retrospective curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Daniel Birnbaum that seeks to capture and revel in Gilbert & George’s unique universe. Featuring a selection of historical works deemed by the artists themselves as the most representative of their career.


Pipilotti Rist
Pixel Forest


Pixel Forest by Pipilotti Rist is one of the most recent works by the Zurich-based artist, presented here for the first time in France. The installation comprised of 3,000 thousand LED lights, resembles a movie screen that has exploded into the space, immersing the viewer in a room-size 3-dimensional video. When walking into this forest of lights, the walls around seem to disappear. Video is used as a source of enlightening radiance that melts tenderly with the surroundings and blurs the lines between object, environment, image, and light.

 
 
Arthur Jafa
APEX

Following last year's Love is the Message, the Message is Death acclaimed filmmaker, cinematographer, and visual artist Arthur Jafa presents here his seminal video APEX (2013) for the first time in France. The striking music-driven 8-minute video work proposes a vibrant scenario in which the histories drawn from the African American narrative of Blackness bear universal significance.

 
Amar Kanwar
Such a Morning

Amar Kanwar has spent his career gathering luminous scraps of testimony to chronicle the resilience of India’s most vulnerable. He repeatedly cajoles and blandishes light to offer stories in which darkness never reigns supreme and human beings rarely, if ever, submit to obscurity. Darkness in his films and in particular in his latest one, Such a Morning (2017), which premiered at documenta 14, invites both the possibility for revelation and the brilliance of protest.
