Head Shop. Shop Head — Paul McCarthy, Works 1966–2006

by Paul McCarthy

Steidl & Partners

During the summer of 2006 Moderna Museet will present the largest and most comprehensive survey of American artist Paul McCarthy’s work from 1966 to 2006, including some of his most famous works and recent works that have not previously been shown. Although he has been active for almost 40 years, he did not become known to the general public until the early 1990s. In his work McCarthy undertakes a critical processing of myths and stereotypes generated by American popular culture and how these, often embellished images collide with a reality filled with violence, pornography and madness. McCarthy has worked in a variety of techniques, including installation, sculpture, film and
photography. The exhibition will contain work from the artist's entire career and will include examples of all aspects of his work. This book is the catalogue accompanying the exhibition.
