Entrance to the Mind: Drawings by George Condo in the Morgan Library & Museum
Entrance to the Mind: Drawings by George Condo in the Morgan Library & Museum, showcases the 2021 acquisition of twenty-eight drawings by American artist George Condo that offer an overview of his career over the last forty-five years. Ranging from early drawings made when he was a teenager to recent explorations into what he calls “psychological Cubism,” the exhibition highlights Condo’s brilliant draftsmanship through a cast of characters in turn comic, monstrous, tragic, and endearing. This engaging show is curated by Master Drawings associate editor Isabelle Dervaux, the Acquavella Curator and Head of the Department of Modern and Contemporary Drawings at the Morgan.
To learn more about how central drawing is to Condo’s artistic practice read Dervaux’s conversation with the artist in Master Drawings (Vol 60, No 3).

These fascinating drawings will be on display until May 14.
