George Condo: The Way I Think

Working in New York and Paris (where he lived from 1985 to 1995), Condo has long challenged the primacy of painting over drawing. He has never considered painting as fulfillment of his drawing's promise. It is in his drawings that his process of “painting memory” (the title of a course he taught at Harvard University) becomes most undisguised—where he relies on the mind and the imagination to take a “snapshot” rather than photographic material, splits his imaginary subjects into a kind of “psychological cubism,” and allows figurative compositions to be “infested” with abstraction.

This exhibition of approximately 200 drawings and sketches and 8 “drawing paintings” will allow visitors unprecedented insight into the mind and creative process of this extraordinarily imaginative artist.
