3 George Condo inaugurates a new Hauser & Wirth Space

On 15th February, George Condo will inaugurate Hauser & Wirth’s newly established West Hollywood gallery with his first exhibition in LA in nearly five years. With the exhibition’s title ‘People Are Strange,’ taken from the hit 1967 song of the same name by legendary – and quintessentially Los Angeles – band The Doors, Condo’s latest canvases are filled with fragmented portraits and abstractions. In these large-scale works, the artist renders layered, vibrating planes, lines and geometries that suggest a world of oppositional forces and states, at once solemn and euphoric, connected and entropic, logical and ineffable, beautiful and ugly.
