Press Release

White Cube celebrates the opening of The Gilbert & George Centre in East London with exhibition of ‘THE CORPSING PICTURES’ at Mason’s Yard.


White Cube is pleased to announce an exhibition of ‘THE CORPSING PICTURES’ at Mason’s Yard, ahead of the unveiling of The Gilbert & George Centre in Spitalfields, East London.

Comprised of three state-of-the-art galleries spanning over 280 square metres, The Gilbert & George Centre will open to the public on 1 April 2023 with an exhibition of ‘THE PARADISICAL PICTURES’. Gilbert & George’s vision for the Centre, which is a registered charity, is for it to both serve as a place for research and scholarship on their art, as well as a major cultural institution in London.

On view at White Cube Mason’s Yard, ‘THE CORPSING PICTURES’ are Gilbert & George’s most profoundly personal and confrontational art to date. They will also be exhibited for the first time in the U.S. at White Cube West Palm Beach, Florida, from 12 April to 13 May 2023.

The Gilbert & George Centre will initially open Friday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm with additional opening days extending into 2023.
