George Condo and Massimiliano Gioni

Since first bursting onto the scene in the early 1980s with his unique adaptation of the language of old-master painting, George Condo has created one of the most adventurous, imaginative, and provocative bodies of work in contemporary art. Included in the exhibition is a dramatic installation of more than fifty portraits depicting invented characters that often assimilate and appropriate elements from masterpieces by the greatest Western artists of the past 500 years, from Diego Velázquez to Pablo Picasso to Arshile Gorky.

Janine Antoni: Artist included in the exhibition “Skin Fruit: Selections from the Dakis Joannou Collection”

Janine Antoni

June 10th, 2010

Janine Antoni is known for the use of her body in the creation of performance-based sculptures. By presenting her body in relationship to unusual mediums and extreme processes, Antoni engages her cultural definition, specifically through gender and identity. Although her process draws from the banal activities of the everyday—sleeping, eating, bathing—Antoni’s main focus when creating art is on the work’s relation to the viewer through its physicality. In her most recent work, Antoni explores her role as a mother, and the concept of “home” as it relates to the body’s interior.
