This is the first major US survey of over eighty paintings and sculptures from the past twenty-eight years of the George Condo's career. The artist is famously prolific, and this tightly edited selection of works from 1982 to the present responds to his prodigious output with a unique conceptual approach. The exhibition is organized thematically and stylistically in "chapters" developed in close collaboration with the artist. Highlighting the breadth of Condo's artistic exploration, the exhibition will focus on the specific ideas to which he has returned throughout his career, particularly his ongoing investigation of human physiognomy and its capacity to convey varied "mental states".
