Paul McCarthy's Lowlife Slowlife Tidebox Tidebook Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Low Life Slow Life-a hefty, 640-page tome covering a two-part exhibition at San Francisco's CCA Wattis Institute curated by Los Angeles-based artist Paul McCarthy-is packaged as an instantly recognizable recreation of a Tide box, circa 1973. A fine work of book art in its own right, it showcases a vast range of works that have influenced McCarthy's career, presenting a personal map of his individual take on art history alongside his unique creative philosophy. This personal map includes works by John Altoon, Gunter Brus, Howard Fried, Dan Graham, Allan Kaprow, Rachel Khedoori, Yves Klein, Tetsumi Kudo, Yayoi Kusama, Maria Lassnig, Robert Mallary, Gustav Metzger, Yoko Ono, Lil Picard, Jason Rhoades, Dieter Roth, Barbara Smith, Stan VanDerBeek and Andy Warhol. The catalogue, which is designed by McCarthy with Jon Sueda, also includes an interview with McCarthy and an essay on his work by Wattis Institute curator Jens Hoffmann.
