Gilbert and George: Major Exhibition

London: Tate Publishing, 2007. First Edition. INSCRIBED by Gilbert and George, on front endpaper, "Love from / Gilbert and George / xx." From the collection of noted curator Brenda Richardson. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at Tate Modern between February 15 through May 6, 2007.

One of the most distinguished art curators and historians of the twentieth century, Brenda Richardson began her career at the University Art Museum in Berkeley (1964-1975), and went on to become the chief curator at the Baltimore Museum Art between 1975 and 1998. An unapologetic champion of contemporary art, she curated well over 70 major exhibitions for the BMA, the high spots being notable stagings for Frank Stella, Brice Marden, Barnett Newman, and Bruce Nauman. She also curated the 1985 exhibition of the Cone Collection, the BMA's prized centerpiece, which contains over 3000 works, including 600 pieces by Matisse, as well as work by Picasso, Cezanne, Gauguin, and others. She has authored and contributed to dozens of books on contemporary art, and John Waters, one of the most significant thinkers in the world of contemporary art, considers Richardson to be his mentor.
