Condo was instrumental in reviving figuration in American art, together with Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, and Jeff Koons back in the 1980s, and continues to be one of the most important American figurative sculptors and painters, with a career spanning almost 4 decades.

The exhibition is not a retrospective but rather a show representing some of the artist’s best examples of his work focusing on the human figure which is an ongoing focus of the Museum of Cycladic Art’s curated contemporary program.
