Scapegoating Pictures For Belfast | Exhibition 

 The MAC, Belfast • 26 January – 22 April ’18

 Scapegoating Pictures For Belfast, a major new exhibition by Gilbert & George opens in the MAC, Belfast, next week. Working together for 50 years, Gilbert & George’s work is some of the most provocative and instantly recognisable in contemporary art and they have specifically curated this exhibition for Belfast and the MAC, which will cover all three of the Belfast venues galleries.

 The Scapegoating Pictures For Belfast unflinchingly describe the volatile, tense, accelerated and mysterious reality of our increasingly technological, multi-faith and multi-cultural world. It is a world in which paranoia, fundamentalism, surveillance, religion, accusation and victimhood become moral shades of the city’s temper. Gilbert & George take their place in these Scapegoating Pictures as shattered and spirit-like forms – at times masked, at times as grotesquely capering skeletons, at times dead-eyed and impassive.

Scapegoating Pictures For Belfast opens on Friday 26 January and runs until 22 April.  The exhibition is open daily from 10am-7pm and admission is free. To book a ticket to see Gilbert & George visit www.themaclive.com
