Jack Rutberg keeps hitting them out of the ballpark, which is not a particularly good way of keeping me out of his gallery. This time the home run is a show featuring some early works from the artist George Condo that will run through September 3.
Half the fun of looking at an artist’s work is observing his or her journey; how they got from point A to point B. And Rutberg is the consummate master at unearthing early works, the “A” points so to speak, from some of art’s major players. It was therefore a pleasure responding to his invitation to participate in an Eric Minh Swenson Place (f.64) video production at Condo’s opening (I speak towards the end of the video.)
