George Condo's Schtick

Sharon Butler provides a great round up of the copious press surrounding George Condo's much discussed, mostly venerated exhibition George Condo: Mental States, at The New Museum through May 8, 2011.  Butler comments: "When I saw the show I was struck by Condo's painterly brio, but I haven't given the paintings much thought since, except to wonder what their popularity might mean about our cultural legacy."
