New York–based contemporary artist Cary Leibowitz (b. 1963) creates comically self-effacing text-based works with a decidedly gay and often Jewish perspective that address issues of identity, kitsch, modernist critique and queer politics. Since the early 1990s, when he became widely known under the moniker "Candyass," Leibowitz has been one of the art world's most delicious practitioners of this demonstrative self-abasement. The exhibition features nearly 350 original artworks and multiples from 1987 to the present: paintings, fabric works, multiples, installations, documentation, photography and ephemera related to curatorial endeavors and performance.
New York-based Cary Leibowitz came up in the ’90s and is known for work that considers identity, queer politics and the art market, among other subjects. This sprawling exhibition presents the artist’s first comprehensive museum survey and features a new hardcover catalog with newly commissioned essays contextualizing the more than 350 artworks and multiples on display.
