About Paul McCarthy Born in 1945 in Salt Lake City, Utah, Paul McCarthy is one of the most important and influential contemporary American artists. He is known for challenging, visceral work in a variety of mediums – from performance, photography, video and installation, to sculpture, drawing and painting – and scales ranging from tiny to monumental. Playing on popular illusions, delusions and cultural myths, his work has often incorporated obsessive activities and challenged expected physical orientation. McCarthy studied art at the University of Utah and went on to receive a BFA in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1969. He studied film, video and art at the University of Southern California, receiving an MFA in 1972. From 1982 to 2002, he taught performance, video, installation and performance art history at the University of California, Los Angeles. Recent solo exhibitions include ‘Paul McCarthy. Drawings’, The Renaissance Society, Chicago IL (2015); Volksbühne, Berlin, Germany (2015); Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin, Germany (2015); ‘Inbetween. Baselitz – McCarthy’, Economou Collection, Athens, Greece (2015); ‘Paul McCarthy. Spin Offs: White Snow WS, Caribbean Pirates CP’, Hauser & Wirth Zürich, Switzerland (2015); ‘Chocolate Factory’, Monnaie de Paris, Paris, France (2014) and ‘Paul McCarthy – WS SC’, Hauser & Wirth London (2014).
