BERLIN.- Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers
present an exhibition of new works by George Condo.
At the opening of
the gallery in Berlin in October 2008, large-format drawings by the artist were
displayed in the cabinet on the upper floor; now with the exhibition ‘Family
Portraits’, Condo is continuing the discourse on the figurative element in
painting, which is one of the fundamental aspects in the artist’s oeuvre. George
Condo, who already in 1984 had his first solo exhibition at the Monika Sprüth
Galerie in Cologne, resided at the beginning of the 1980s for an extended period
in Cologne and moved within the context of the Junge Wilden. On view 30
January through 1 April, 2010.
