George Condo Solo Exhibition

In late September 2021, Long Museum (West Bund) in Shanghai will present the largest solo exhibition by George Condo in Asia, 'The Picture Gallery.' It will bring together more than 90 paintings made throughout the artist’s career and will debut a new series of large-scale canvases made specifically for this presentation.

Curated by Massimiliano Gioni, the exhibition focuses on some of the most important cycles and bodies of works that have defined Condo's art since the late 1970s when the artist was among the first to herald a critical return to painting after decades of conceptual art practices. 

As suggested by its title - borrowed from a 2002 painting - the exhibition is conceived as a gallery of imaginary portraits: a salon of fictional ancestors and fallen members of an imagined aristocracy hung in the cavernous galleries of Long Museum (West Bund) as in the halls of a decaying futurist castle.
