Kenny Scharf: Inner and Outer Space at Deitch Projects

Untapped Cities finally made it to Deitch Projects, and as luck would have it, the exhibit Kenny Scharf: Inner and Outer Space was on view. While Scharf was born in Los Angeles, where he resides today, he attended the School of Visual Arts (BFA 1980) in New York, and was very much a part of the 1980’s East Village art scene. His comic book inspired work, though playful and optimistic, give way to deeper and timely messages for the viewer to discover.

Of the exhibit, Scharf states that he is “reacting to our increasingly out-of-control situation.” Viewers are encouraged to look beneath “the facade and focus on ecology, environment and capitalist excess.” Kenny Scharf: Inter and Outer Space will be on view to December 22, 2017 at Deitch Projects, 18 Wooster Street.
