Join us for a hands-on Family Studio exploring themes of our summer exhibition ‘Paul McCarthy. WS Spinoffs, Wood Statues, Brown Rothkos.’

About the Studio:
Utilizing McCarthy’s staged process of producing ‘abstracts through merging,’ families will be led by Julia M. Leonard and invited to imagine their own scaled abstractions based on the 19th century German folktale ‘Schneewittchen’ (Snow White), a deeply mined theme within the LA-based artist’s multidisciplinary practice.

About the Exhibition:
‘Paul McCarthy. WS Spinoffs, Wood Statues, Brown Rothkos’ is the gallery’s first exhibition in Los Angeles devoted to the provocative and influential work of acclaimed LA-based artist Paul McCarthy. Opening 1 July, this exhibition presents ‘spinoffs’ from White Snow, a major ongoing project within the artist’s multidisciplinary practice that subverts the beloved 19th century German folktale ‘Schneewittchen’ (Snow White) and the modern interpretation of that story in Disney’s 1937 animated classic ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’ Never before exhibited in Los Angeles, the works on view – twelve monumental carved black walnut sculptures of Snow White, the Prince, and Dopey, alongside arresting wall hangings – seek to disrupt traditional notions of art and culture, while introducing viewers to McCarthy’s tireless exploration of mediums.

This event is free, however, advanced booking is essential as there are limited places.
