’Music is such a huge part of my life; without it I don’t know if I’d ever have painted anything,’ said Condo. ’There are so many great pieces of music that have inspired me to paint…My favourite thing is to put on a record in the studio and to still be painting without noticing the fact that the music has stopped playing for hours and is just running through my head.’

Josefowicz’s performance will be livestreamed on 20th November 2020 at 2pm EST / 7pm GMT and free to view via the gallery website.
