Pierre ❤️ Gilles: Grit and Glitter

Pierre ❤️ Gilles: Grit and Glitter
Date: 11 October – 9 November 1997
Space: Temporary Exhibition (now Gallery 3)

Exhibition of photographic work by Pierre et Gilles.

Grit and Glitter was part of Fotofeis 1997, the third biennial of photo-based arts in Scotland. That year the focus was on the theme of sex – as procreation, a basic instinct, a consumer selling technique, an expression of intimacy, inadequacy, love, fantasy and power.

This exhibition presented three groups of painted photographs by the French artists Pierre et Gilles. In association with Glasgow Museums, the artists created special installations around the works to enhance the mood of each group. Many of the works in the exhibition were on show in Britain for the first time.

Artists: Pierre et Gilles
