George Condo

Newport Sexx Festival

July 1 – 22, 2017    

On July 1st, the Newport Art Museum held its annual Summer Gala, the Artists’ Ball, honoring acclaimed art writers Dodie Kazanjian and Calvin Tomkins.

In celebration of the festivities, Ms. Kazanjian invited four artists to create works in three Newport institutions (Newport Art Museum, Redwood Library and Trinity Church) as part of the first annual Art + Newport Festival. Seven works by George Condo, in a show the artist has called “The Newport Sexx Festival,” are at the Newport Art Museum (plus one at the Redwood Library & Athenaeum); a poster declaring as much reworks a 1959 Newport Jazz Festival poster and will be for sale in a limited edition to benefit the museum.
