Paul McCarthy Sculptures
Outdoor Public Display!
The Hauser & Wirth exhibitions will be complemented by outdoor public presentations of two major McCarthy sculptures. The massive bronze composition ‘Sisters’ (2013) will stand outdoors in West Chelsea through the summer on a site in Hudson River Park at 17th Street and the Hudson River, between Pier 57 and the Sports Center at Chelsea Piers. And the 80-foot tall inflatable sculpture ‘Balloon Dog’ (2013) will be shown on Randall’s Island during the Frieze New York art fair. All of McCarthy’s works on view in Manhattan this spring relate directly to and provide context for the much-anticipated presentation of the artist’s major work in progress, ‘WS’, a sprawling installation and video projection project that will go on view at the Park Avenue Armory beginning 19 June. ‘WS’ will fill the Armory’s vast Drill Hall with a dark and magical forest sculpture featuring soaring trees and a three-quarter scale exact recreation of the house where Paul McCarthy grew up: these sets where he and his collaborators created a video performance work will appear in multiple projections throughout Drill Hall. ‘WS’ uses as its springboard the story of fairytale princess Snow White and those who have commoditized her, in order to explore the Oedipal complexities of family, art-making, the institutionalization of history, and pop culture consumption. ‘WS’ will remain on view through 4 August.
THE ART OF PUNK COMING SOON @MOCATwitter #MOCATV @MOCALosAngeles #RaymondPettibon #BlackFlag #JUNE11
Created by writer/author of ‘Fucked Up + Photocopied’, Bryan Ray Turcotte (Kill Your Idols), and Bo Bushnell (The Western Empire), The Art Of Punk traces the roots of the punk movement and the artists behind the iconic logos of punk bands such as: Black Flag (Raymond Pettibon), The Dead Kennedys (Winston Smith), and Crass (Dave King).
In addition to profiling the artists, the series includes intimate interviews with former band members, notable artists, and celebrities who have been heavily influenced by the art of punk rock including Jello Biafra, Tim Biskup, Scott Campbell, Chuck Dukowski, Flea, Steve Olson, Penny Rimbaud, Henry Rollins, Owen Thornton, and Gee Vaucher.
The filmmakers Bryan Ray Turcotte and Bo Bushnell take a unique approach to exploring the rich histories of these three seminal punk legends by focusing on the influential imagery and seeking out stories that have not been told yet through the artwork, which is integral to the importance and influence of each band.
On June 11, 2013 The Art Of Punk debuts on MOCAtv with an episode on Raymond Pettibon and the artwork of Black Flag. The stories behind the art of the Dead Kennedys will debut on June 18, and June 25 will see the release of the Crass episode, all of which will be available at: www.youtube.com/MOCAtv

#NYC: CARROLL DUNHAM in conversation with JERRY SALTZ @jerrysaltz @ 192 BOOKS @192books #CARROLLDUNHAM

Carroll Dunham: A Drawing Survey
(Blum & Poe, 2013)
in conversation with
This volume constitutes a 30-year survey of works on paper by New York-based painter Carroll Dunham.
Dunham’s visual lexicon, drawing on such precursors as Arshile Gorky, André Masson and Philip Guston, and populated by biomorphic forms equipped with grinding teeth, phallic noses, top hats, daggers and guns, expresses an unbridled and polymorphous sexuality in which conflict is overtly celebrated. Dunham produces one or more drawings per day, for weeks at a time or longer, and has now amassed an astonishing breadth of material and content. Included here are some 366 drawings by Dunham, spanning his early career in the 1980s to the present, and covering all aspects of his drawing practice.
Jerry Saltz has been at art critic at The Village Voice and New York Magazine. His books include Seeing Out Loud: The Village Voice Art Columns 1998-2003 and Seeing Out Louder: Art Criticism 2003-2009.
ICI @CuratorsINTL & Burberry @Burberry do it: the compendium launch event w/ #RichardWentworth #UriAran #HansUlrichObrist #KateFowle #Burberry #Wmagazine @wmag #doit @doit_INTL
do it began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and artistsChristian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier. They were curious to see what would happen if they started an exhibition that could constantly generate new versions of itself. To test the idea, they invited 12 artists to propose artworks based on written instructions that can be openly interpreted every time they are presented. 20 years later, more than 400 artists have contributed an instruction and exhibitions of their realizations have taken place in 59 countries around the world, making do itthe longest running, farthest reaching exhibition to ever happen.
To mark the 20th anniversary of do it, Obrist has collaborated with Independent Curators International (ICI) on the publication, do it: the compendium, Independent Curators International (ICI), New York and D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, Inc., May 2013, 448 pages. $35.00.

518 West 27th Street
Preview May 9-10 from 6pm
Open every evening from 6pm
Tobias Rehberger’s Bar Oppenheimer opens for the launch of Frieze New York 2013.
Bar Oppenheimer is a replica of Tobias Rehberger’s favorite late night hang out in Frankfurt. Bar Oppenheimer is both an artwork and a functioning bar. Replicating the original bar’s layout, Rehberger blends a cocktail of references ranging from his personal life to Project Manhattan in which Robert Oppenheimer created the atomic bomb. Vodka Steins, Tobias Rehberger’s favourite drink will be served so visitors can experience Rehberger’s own Frankfurt Bar Oppenheimer in NYC.
Rehberger has attracted widespread international acclaim including his installation for the Palazzo delle Espozizioni at the 53rd Venice Biennial for which he was awarded the Golden Lion.
