Goerge Condo & Tina Barney for the AW22 Myths & Legends 14.
George Condo was born in Concord, New Hampshire in 1957. He attended the University of Massachusetts, in Lowell, where he studied Music Theory and Art History. Condo’s art can be viewed as a multilayered experience that brings the viewer in touch with a psychological exploration of human nature. Through the process of transformation involving art historical language and an actualization of philosophical content, Condo’s paintings create a visible window into the world we live in. His work is in the permanent collections of many major museums and public collections around the world including The Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), The Museum of Modern Art (New York), The Broad Foundation (Los Angeles), The Tate (London) and the Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris). Condo has been invited to lecture at many prestigious institutions and taught a six-month course at Harvard University entitled Painting Memory.
Over the course of her 40-year career, acclaimed American photographer Tina Barney (b. 1945) has illuminated the inner lives of her subjects, observing the generational repetition of familial traditions and rituals as played out in domestic settings. Recognized for her large- format photographic portraits realized in vibrant color—and more recently, for her foray into landscape photography—Barney demonstrates the same complexity and sensitivity whether she is shooting world-renowned celebrities or the figures and faces of those known to her personally.
