Within its contemporary art program the Museum of Cycladic Art will hold the exhibition “GEORGE CONDO at CYCLADIC”. This will be the first major solo museum exhibition of the American artist George Condo in Greece.
The exhibition will include painting, sculptures and drawings spanning his 40 year career and a catalogue will be published on its occasion.
Condo was instrumental in reviving figuration in American art, together with Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, and Jeff Koons back in the 1980s, and continues to be one of the most important American figurative sculptors and painters, with a career spanning almost 4 decades.
The exhibition is curated by Atalanti Martinou.
With the support of Outset Greece.
His work is in the permanent collections of (among others):
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York,
The Museum of Modern Art, New York
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York,
Citigroup Art Advisory Service Collection, New York
The Broad Collection, Los Angeles
Tate Gallery, London
Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris
Deste Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Athens
Moderna Museet, Stockholm
Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam
The exhibition “GEORGE CONDO at CYCLADIC” will not be a chronological description of the work in the sense of a retrospective but rather a show representing some of the artist’s best examples of his work focusing on the human figure; an ongoing interest of the MCA’s curated contemporary program.
