candyass is coming

I'm sick of making art; get up you lazy bum

One of my all-time-favorite conceptual artists is coming to the Bay Area this weekend.

Cary Leibowitz (AKA CandyAss) in conversation with Glen Helfand

Cary Leibowitz mixes Jewish identity, kitsch, modernist critique, Queer politics, and design culture into dryly witty multiples and paintings. The artist will be in converation with the San Francisco Art Institute’s Glen Helfand celebrating the release of a new limited edition artwork developed especially for the Museum Store.

Leibowitz’ work was included in the landmark exhibitions Too Jewish? Challenging Traditional Identities at the Jewish Museum New York; In a Different Light at the University Art Museum, University of California, Berkeley and Bad Girls, New Museum for Contemporary Art, New York.
