About the exhibitions
The Museum of Cycladic Art hosts the exhibition “George Condo at Cycladic”, George Condo’s first large personal museum exhibition in Greece. The exhibition presents a total of 30 works -including paintings, sculptures and drawings – which span the past 20 years of the artist’s career. Rather than a chronological display of the artist’s oeuvre in the form of a retrospective, George Condo’s exhibition at the Museum of Cycladic Art is a selection of paintings, drawings, and sculptures that implore us to explore the human figure, a principal theme of the Museum of Cycladic Art’s contemporary exhibitions program. Condo, along with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Jeff Koons, was instrumental in reviving figuration in America in the 1980s and is considered one of the most important American figurative sculptors and painters to this day.
NEON is pleased to present an exhibition of New York-based artist Paul Chan in Athens, Greece, guest-curated by Sam Thorne, Director of Nottingham Contemporary. Odysseus and the Bathers at the Museum of Cycladic Art presents a body of new and recent works, which the artist calls “breathers” and “bathers”. Each figure is composed of a fabric “body” designed by Chan and attached to specially modified fans. These kinetic sculptural works act like moving images in three dimensions. Incorporating techniques that combine fashion, drawing and physics, Chan manipulates how the figures move by composing the internal architecture of the bodies so they direct the airflow from the fans to create different kinds of motion. The “bathers” will be joined by gouache fabric pieces, works on paper and maquettes.
