SCAPEGOATING PICTURES for London is the latest exhibition by Gilbert & George, currently on display at the White Cube, Bermondsey. I saw a previous London exhibition of theirs at Tate Britain back in 2010.
I can't reproduce any of their artwork here, but I can quote part of the website's description:

''The ‘SCAPEGOATING PICTURES’ 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 themselves are always highly quotable, as these two items should demonstrate.

 A small selection of the SCAPEGOATING artwork can be found here.

The exhibition runs until 28 September 2014.
