“The strength of two people together is enormous. That’s why, all over the world, people and creatures are divided into two.” Artists Gilbert & George have been creating “Art for All” since they met as students in the 1960s. “In the old days, when we were socially involved with artists, they always would tell you they’re always nervous of what to do next.
