The Mad and the Lonely will showcase small-scale paintings and sculptures from George Condo’s extensive career, focusing on society’s outcasts who oscillate between madness and loneliness. The exhibition blends influences from the Renaissance to Pop Art, breaking traditional portraiture norms. Featuring distorted, emotionally charged figures, the artworks reveal the spectrum of human emotions and merge ancient and modern elements, reflecting Condo’s paradoxical blend of beauty and grotesque, humor and tragedy.
