Unfolding across the entirety of both the gallery’s London spaces, an exhibition dedicated exclusively to the works of George Condo, a defining figure of contemporary American painting. The exhibition brings together new drawings and paintings depicting characters captured in an abstract web that reveals the humanity inherent in their fractured psychological states. The portraits reflect a range of emotions occurring simultaneously within us, buried deep within our subconscious, revealing themselves through the figurative form. Condo has forged a relentlessly inventive path, deploying technical skill and canonical art historical knowledge to channel the painterly modes of American and European art history into works of astonishing originality.
Opening 25 September 2021, the Long Museum in Shanghai will present the largest solo exhibition by George Condo in Asia to date, which will feature up to 150 works by Condo.
