For George Condo, “the Humanoid is not a science fiction monster, but a depiction that uses traditional methods to bring a person’s inner emotions to the surface”. Over the course of eight sections, the exhibition traces the continuity of a profuse body of work that ranges from “space beings” to Who’s Who, from Guido Reni to Bugs Bunny. Featuring specially produced paintings, the exhibition offers a glimpse of the artist’s process of invention – as crazy as it is erudite – of humanoids. From Friday, March 31 to Sunday October 1, 2023 at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco – Villa Paloma. Discover more about the exhibition here. Read more about George Condo in our article here.
