About The Work

Richard Gober is known for strange photographs, sculptures, drawings, and installations that blend fiction and reality. This iconic photolithograph was originally featured on the cover of Gober’s Newspaper (1992—93), exhibited in the groundbreaking 1993 Whitney Biennial centered around identity politics. Here, the artist recreates a page of the New York Times where he inserts himself into a bridal advertisement for Saks Fifth Avenue. Gober once said about the wedding dress, “There’s no comparable costume for a man that symbolizes this moment … we’ve only created this outfit for women.” Positioned beneath a headline about the discrimination of homosexuals, like himself, this work makes the political personal.
