This morning, we previewed a pair of Paul McCarthy shows at both of Hauser & Wirth's New York City locations.
Seen here are highlights from Paul McCarthy: Life Cast, on view at the 69th Street location through July 26, 2013. The ground floor of the exhibition features a series of full-scale platinum silicone life casts—one of the artist (Horizontal, 2012) and four of actress Elyse Poppers (That Girl/T.G. Asleep and three as part of That Girl/T.G. Awake, all 2012–13). The second floor features a pair of multi-channel video installations documenting the process behind That Girl.
