The Museum of Cycladic Art (MCA) hosts the exhibition George Condo at Cycladic, opening on June 8, through its contemporary art program. This is the first major solo museum exhibition of the American artist George Condo in Greece. The exhibition will include painting, sculptures, and drawings spanning the artist’s 40-year career and a catalogue will be published for the occasion.
Condo was instrumental in reviving figuration in American art, together with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Jeff Koons in the 1980s, and continues to be one of the most important American figurative sculptors and painters. 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; and 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. The exhibition is curated by Atalanti Martinou.
