There has probably been no other project by Gilbert & George that has fitted their 'art for all' maxim than Scapegoating Pictures for London. Opening at the Whitecube Bermondsey on the 18th July for an evening preview, the exhibition brings satirical, yet serious political issues to the forefront.

The duo describe themselves as 'living sculptures', always placing themselves at the centre of each artwork. They stand for the passive onlooker, modern humanity and liberation.
In the background, however, you will get a darker taste of urban society, featuring themes such as technology, surveillance, religion, drugs, and terrorism.

Scapegoating Pictures represents multi-culturalism and free thinking, suggesting that art really is 'for all', and to be shared by every member of our society. The exhibit is free to visit and will remain open until the 28th September.
