Paul McCarthy: Film List
July 11–Sept 28, 2008

Film has been an important inspiration for Paul McCarthy since the beginning of his career. McCarthy began making films as a student in the 1960s, and his current exhibition on the Whitney’s third floor includes two rare 16mm films screening for the first time in decades. Curated by Paul McCarthy, this film program provides an intriguing insight into the impact of cinema on his work.
