Paul McCarthy

By Kristine Stiles, Ralph Rugoff, Massimiliano Gioni, and Robert Storr

Los-Angeles-based artist Paul McCarthy is recognized for his provocative performances, multi-media installations, and sculptures that fuse high and low culture to explore the mass media and American consumerism. Adding violence and sexuality to subjects that have been traditionally valued for their innocence, McCarthy takes aim at cherished American myths and icons. Through interviews, unpublished notes, critical reviews, and an overview of the progression of the artist’s work, Paul McCarthy provides a comprehensive survey of over twenty years of work by a profoundly influential artist.

Playtime, an exhibition featuring this artist, is on view February 10 to May 6, 2018.
