Major international art dealer Hauser & Wirth is now representing George Condo. The acclaimed painter — widely recognized for his collage-style paintings of 17th-century subjects to pop culture figures — had previously shown works for Skarstedt Gallery (New York and London), Simon Lee Gallery (New York, London, and Hong Kong) and Sprüth Magers (Berlin, London, and Los Angeles) — Condo will still work with Sprüth Magers to present works for upcoming shows. As for Hauser & Wirth, Condo is gearing up for his first show this June at the gallery’s Zurich location.

“I look forward to starting this new decade with Hauser & Wirth. 2020 will be a chance to begin working with a gallery that has created an exceptional global platform for artists and viewers to discover, engage and study a range of multi-generational and cross-cultural artists,” said Condo in a press statement. “They have consistently mounted landmark exhibitions around the world opening the eyes of the viewer to the new and unfamiliar. It is of great interest to me that Hauser & Wirth takes a very comprehensive and academic approach to the artist’s legacy.”

We are thrilled to announce worldwide representation of George Condo. Now a defining figure of contemporary American painting, he has forged a relentlessly inventive path over the past four decades. Alongside his paintings, Condo has developed a rich vocabulary of sculpture since the 1980s when he began to meld found objects with materials like wood, plaster and paint to create three-dimensional bronze sculptures. Condo collapses hierarchies, between painting and drawing, the beautiful and the grotesque, and the comic and the tragic.⁣ ⁣ Hauser & Wirth’s first project with George Condo will be an exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Zürich in June 2020, coinciding with Art Basel.⁣ Follow the link in our bio to learn more. ⁣ #GeorgeCondo #HauserWirth @artistgeorgecondo ⁣ ⁣ 1) Portrait of George Condo © George Condo⁣ 2) George Condo, Double Heads on Blue and Silver, 2014 © George Condo⁣ 3) Installation view, 'George Condo, Constellation of Voices.
