If you're looking for a quick escape that takes you indoors and surrounds you with art, the British duo Gilbert & George has a summer exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Here, a few select images from the show, highlighting the artists' London environment:

From the museum's foreword: Often described as the quintessential London artists, Gilbert & George take their subject matter from their immediate environment, the liminal border between the City (the financial and commercial district of London) and the East End. The fusions and tensions of the area, between local and global, privilege and exclusion, migrant populations and cultural traditions, are at the heart of their art.

The Glass 2, 1973

Dead Boards No. 7, 1976

Deatho Knocko, 1982

Twenty-Eight Streets, 1982
