"Paul McCarthy"
2001-10-19 until 2002-01-13
Tate Liverpool
Liverpool, , UK United Kingdom

This is the first survey exhibition of Paul McCarthy's work to be shown in Europe. McCarthy, one of the most influential and pioneering artists of his generation, uses a range of media including photography, painting, sculpture, performance, video and installation to explore the darker sides of American society.

This exhibition brings together work from the past thirty years and gives an overview of his practice. Using popular culture as his primary source material, McCarthy challenges us to confront complex issues around sex, violence, consumerism, the mass media and the family. His performances and installations combine physical theatricality and humour to engage in a wide-ranging social critique.

Visitors should be aware that some of the works in this exhibition are of an explicit nature which they may find challenging. These works are not considered suitable for children. Please contact the Gallery if you need further information and guidance.
