Paul McCarthy

  • Categories: Art

"Working in a pioneering fusion of sculpture and conceptually based performance, Paul McCarthy is one of the most influential figures in contemporary art*however the full range is of his oeuvre is still not fully appreciated or understood. While his architectural installations incorporating video and performance artifacts have received copious critical and curatorial attention during the present decade, few viewers are familiar with the scope of his artistic evolution, or with the impact his works had had on two generations of Los Angeles artists. This catalogue*accompanying McCarthy exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the New Museum of Contemporary Art in new York*covers more than 100 works from all areas of his activity, and gives an exemplary insight into McCarthy's works form the early 70s up to the present day. Experts on his work give comprehensive descriptions and analyses of the artist's performances and installations, examine the unique ties between his works and the cinematic arts, and explore the ongoing dialogue between the artistic cultures of New York and Los Angeles, particularly in terms of the development of conceptual art."

Chocolate Factory

  • Categories: Art

This new publication by Paul McCarthy (born 1945) is realized on the occasion of the opening of "Chocolate Factory," his first large-scale exhibition in France, presented at Monnaie de Paris. In this complex and ambitious project, the story of a work seven years in the making merges with the history of the space. Composed of two volumes, "Chocolate Factory, Paris" is an artist's book retracing the development of the project since its very conception to its setting in the eighteenth-century salons of Monnaie de Paris. The book is entirely conceived by the artist around the imagery of Christmas in Paris and more specifically around the figures of Santa Claus and the Christmas Tree with collaged texts, sketches and drawings by McCarthy that make reference to art history, poetry and anthropology.

Paul McCarthy - Revised and Expanded Edition

  • Categories: Art

Definitive monograph on America's most challenging and influential artist Los-Angeles-based artist Paul McCarthy (b.1945) creates Disneyesque installations, sculptures of animal/vegetable/human hybrids and slapstick performances in a purge of a national subconscious. The psycho-sexual desires and anxieties induced by the media and the built environment of contemporary America emerge in his collisions of plastic prosthetic limbs and condiments that stand in for bodily fluids. These works have been variously deployed: through live actions, often documented on video, and more recently in outsized figures and artificial rural environments, combined in overtly sexual ways. McCarthy's work echoes that of European artists such as Joseph Beuys or the Viennese Aktionistes, but gives 'action art' a postmodern twist. This new revised and expanded edition includes contributions by luminaries such as Kristine Stiles, Ralph Rugoff, Massimiliano Gioni and Robert Storr.

Pay for Your Pleasures

  • Categories: Art

Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, and Raymond Pettibon—these Southern California artists formed a “bad boy” trifecta. Early purveyors of abject art, the trio produced work ranging from sculptures of feces to copulating stuffed animals, and gained notoriety from being perverse. Showing how their work rethinks transgressive art practices in the wake of the 1960s, Pay for Your Pleasures argues that their collaborations as well as their individual enterprises make them among the most compelling artists in the Los Angeles area in recent years. Cary Levine focuses on Kelley’s, McCarthy’s, and Pettibon’s work from the 1970s through the 1990s, plotting the circuitous routes they took in their ...

Paul Mccarthy: Caribbean Pirates

This abundantly illustrated two-volume publication presents the photographic documentation of Frigate and Houseboat, two pirate-themed works by Paul McCarthy and his son Damon McCarthy, alongside a new text by John C. Welchman analyzing the McCarthys' work. Taking the lawlessness of piracy as a departure point, these works explore the ways bodies, sex and violence all find themselves enmeshed in networks of cultural references that span from American consumerism to Disney and classical cinema. "DISNEY DOWN DOO THE HOLE DEATH AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HOLE begins begin begin began downward downward," McCarthy writes of this work; "hell is but a float liken a dead circus caucus past the restraint restaurant know one at the helm at the helm mate fantasy matting four abreast in a suburb boat begins with float float life is but a dream past your favorite sushi sexy house bar down you go know one knows ho ho...."
