Now on view at the New Museum is George Condo's Mental States. This "conceptual survey," as the artist considers it, spans two floors, featuring both paintings and sculptures Condo has created over the past 30 years. His style is eclectic and captivating; his strange portraits of imaginary characters embody themes of melancholia and various other mental states, all the while maintaining both a humorous and fantastical feel. While he may be recently known as the artist that made Kanye West's censored and controversial cover art for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, George Condo's paintings and sculptures embody much more. Watch the video below for a walk through of Mental State, narrated by Associate Curator Gary Carrion-Murayari.
