Paul McCarthy at Hauser and Wirth. Looks just like what you think it looks like.
If you are a fan of artist Paul McCarthy and you live in New York, you’re hitting the mother lode in May and June 2013. Hauser and Wirth have two exhibits currently showing (and one will close and reopen with another in late June) and there additional sculptures and video installations on view. Click on Hauser and Wirth’s website to get a full run down of what is happening and where.
Paul McCarthy at Hauser and Wirth
As you can see from this photo, these sculptures are gargantuan in size and they are filled with McCarthy’s signature subversive imagery. These aren’t the only two sculptures on display however. There are many more on display and they need to be seen in person to really grasp the magnitude of how awesome this exhibit it.
“Sculptures” by Paul McCarthy is on display through June 1, 2013 at Hauser and Wirth’s new space in Chelsea (located at 511 West 18th Street).
As a bonus, this is what you get to look at as you enter Hauser and Wirth in Chelsea.

In advance of Jose Parla and JR’s exhibit which opens this week in New York, they decorated the side of the building in Chelsea where the exhibit will be housed. Pretty cool

New York! Make sure you head over to Able Fine Art in Manhattan to see the latest exhibit from singer/songwriter/poet and extremely prolific fine artist Joseph Arthur entitled “Emblematic Truth.” Both Joseph Arthur’s music and art careers are extremely inspiring and his list of accomplishments in both disciplines are very impressive. I highly encourage you to check out Joseph’s online virtual gallery, The Museum of Modern Arthur (MOMAR) if you have not already done so. You’ll be wowed.

The opening night reception for “Emblematic Truth” was epic for so many reasons. First off, being in a room surrounded by Joseph Arthur’s paintings is a treat in and of itself because his work is so inspiring and visually appealing. In the corner of the exhibit, there was a drum kit and guitar (painted by Joseph Arthur) and Joseph surprised everyone in the gallery and performed for all of us!
I chatted with Joseph and was surprised and delighted that he remembered me from previous experiences with him, which is such a thrill because I have so much respect and admiration for him. Funnily enough, he remembered that I am the king of the “selfie,” where I like to take a photo with the artist whenever I find myself in a situation where that is a possibility.
Michael Stipe and Joseph Arthur
Moments later, one of Joseph’s friends, Michael Stipe (!!!) arrived and Joseph introduced me to him. He mentioned the “selfies” to Michael Stipe who graciously took one with me a few moments later. You can see the “selfies” after the jump.
“Emblematic Truth” by Joseph Arthur is showing at Abel Fine Art Gallery (located at 511 West 25h Street #507) through April 16, 2013. Do not miss it!
In other news, Joseph Arthur will be celebrating the release of his latest album “Ballad of Boogie Christ” with a special show at Bowery Ballroom in New York on June 13, 2013 and tickets go on sale March 29, 2013 at noon. If you’ve never seen Joseph Arthur in concert before, you simply must! See you there!
