Proceeds from this edition benefit the Summer 2018 exhibition at the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College examining the legacies of legendary art dealers Pat Hearn and Colin de Land.
George Condo’s contribution to a collection of prints for CCS Bard’s forthcoming exhibition The Conditions of Being Art: American Fine Arts, Co. & Pat Hearn Gallery (1983-2004), examining the legacies of legendary art dealers Pat Hearn and Colin de Land, is a silkscreen based upon a painting that has never been exhibited before. The iconography speaks for itself: part pseudo-man, part sleepy (or drunk) dog, dressed for an obligatory formal dinner or to have his commissioned portrait painted.
