Paul McCarthy, White Snow Dwarf, Sleepy #1 (Midget)
Hauser & Wirth New York, Lenox Hill Friday May 24 2013 10:00 - 18:00

One of the godfathers of L.A. art (or at least the branch that treats pop culture as one big wallow in sexual abjection), McCarthy has certainly made his contribution, with sculptures of cute Santa figures wielding butt-plugs and depictions of the Seven Dwarves with flacid penises for noses. But more than that, his work sends up America’s glorification of masculinity. With two galleries at his his disposal, expect something big and disturbing.
