Supreme has unveiled the first artist collaboration of the season. As part of its SS19 release, Supreme has teamed up with the iconic art duo George Passmore and Gilbert Prousch, better known as Gilbert and George.
Gilbert and George’s art spans mediums, with some of their best-known work rooted in sculpture and performance, but also encompassing photography, drawing, painting, and film. The common thread across a lot of their work, however, is controversy.
“We want our art to bring out the bigot from inside the liberal and conversely to bring out the liberal from inside the bigot,” they state.
The Supreme collaboration consists of tees, hoodies and skateboard decks, and takes inspiration from the duo’s 27-piece series, 1984 Pictures. The work is a photo collection that explores issues of religion, race, corruption, illness, sex, and death.
The release will drop online and at Supreme stores in New York, Brooklyn, LA, London at Paris this Thursday, March 21 before releasing in Japan on March 23.
