George Condo's "Mental States" coming to New Museum in NYCJuxtapoz // Monday, 15 Nov 2010
This isn't a bandwagon "Kanye West" collaboration thing (although the art that George Condo is creating for Mr. West is extraordinary), we have been eyeing George Condo's work for quite some time. And now we can get a little closer. Coming early next year, Georoge Condo will have "Mental States" on display at New Museum in Manhattan.
So yes, the Kanye West artwork over the past few months has brough a bit of mainstream focus upon Mr. Condo's career, but the New Museum will present the first conceptual survey of twenty five years of work by the American artist Condo. He is famed for his development on the idea of “artificial realism”, which he began in the early 1980s. Those who have follwed Juxtapoz over the past 16 years should feel a bit comfortable with that notion of "artificial realism."
The exhibition opens January 26, 2011. More information as it comes. Visit the New Museum regardless because its a fantastic space with a great program.
