New Museum will run an exhibition of an American artist George Condo, the first major US survey of over eighty paintings and sculptures from the past twenty-eight years of the artist’s career. The show starts from January 26th until May 8th.

Since first bursting onto the scene in the early 1980s with his unique adaptation of the language of Old Master painting, George Condo has created one of the most adventurous, imaginative, and provocative bodies of work in contemporary art. Condo’s work has been deeply influential to two generations of American and European painters, who have felt the impact of the artist’s astonishing technical ability, stylistic versatility, and inventive subject matter. The “George Condo: Mental States” show will be arranged in four groupings over two gallery floors of the New Museum.
