Los Angeles, CA)— The first comprehensive survey in the United States of drawings and works on paper by the Los Angeles–based Paul McCarthy (b. 1945, Salt Lake City), Paul McCarthy: Head Space, Drawings 1963–2019, reveals a rarely examined aspect of the artist’s oeuvre. The exhibition delves into the significant role of drawing in McCarthy’s broader practice, which spans performance, video, photography, sculpture, and installation. By presenting his expansive career of more than five decades through the focused lens of drawing, Head Space offers a greater understanding of this influential artist and social commentator. The exhibition presents nearly 600 works, thoughtfully selected from McCarthy’s archive of drawings.

In July 2017, HRH Franz, Duke of Bavaria permanently donated his extraordinarily exquisite and diverse collection of ceramic objects dating from the 19th to the 21st century to Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum.

At the People and Plants exhibition you’ll find out why the plant world is not only literally vital to our survival, but also delightful in its sheer diversity and beauty. The architecture for the exhibition has been designed to grow like a flower into the three rooms, with its roots, leaves and blossoms. Within this setting, an array of cultural-historical records and artworks, scientific specimens, photographs and video installations vividly demonstrate just how much curiosity and affection we as human beings have for our plant-based environment – but also how reckless and destructive we have been towards it.
