The Way I Think Drawings 1974-2015

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark

Press release

The American artist George Condo (b. 1957) has not been shown in Scandinavia, so his drawings from four decades present a unique opportunity to get to know this original artist. A classic in his own country, Condo has recently had major museum exhibitions in London, Rotterdam, Paris and most recently in Berlin. Throughout the years Condo has challenged the idea that the drawing is secondary to the painting. While it would be wrong to say that Condo is not also a painter, his works on paper form such a high-profile part of his production that this, Louisiana’s introduction to his art from 1974 until the present day, involves a good 130 works and 223 sketchbooks on paper.
