Paul McCarthy’s much anticipated show “WS,” opening at the Park Avenue Armory on June 19, will be the provocative artist’s largest exhibition to date. Thanks to Louisa McCarthy, a member of the McCarthy clan, here’s is a glimpse of the gargantuan trees and the sprawling space in which McCarthy’s depraved world will come to life.
For the Park Avenue Armory show, McCarthy is creating a lush, fantastical forest replete with sculpture and video of a part with his grotesque and sexually-tinged narratives involving formerly-pure pop culture characters. The vast forest installation coincides with a similarly large-scale installation, created in collaboration with his son Damon McCarthy, opening on June 20 at Hauser & Wirth’s Chelsea warehouse.
