For this exhibition, Kenny Scharf has created several new bodies of work that survey his particular aesthetic approaches and sensibilities. The show features paintings, sculptures, a Cosmic Cavern installation, and a customized Cadillac, as well as an opening night performance by longtime collaborator, Ann Magnuson.
Collaborating since their days at Club 57, Scharf and Magnuson have a long-standing friendship based upon their shared worship of all things fun, groovy and surreal. To help christen Scharf’s new customized Cadillac sculpture, The New and Improved Ultima Suprema Deluxa, Magnuson will interact with the piece in a manner reminiscent of the free-associating Beat poets like Kerouac and Ginsberg.
Magnuson’s performance will happen during the opening April 14, 6:00-8:00 pm.
