Art Adventures: Cary Leibowitz's at ICA

By Alexander Mason Hankin | March 19, 2018 | Lifestyle

Personally, I love anything that borders controversial, and the Cary Leibowitz, Museum Show, exhibit at ICA does exactly that.

Masked in bubblegum pink, baby blue, and other ice cream-colored pastels are Leibowitz’s cheeky commentaries on religion, sexuality, and pop-culture references. In a way, the room is set up like an adult nursery—rainbows, stuffed animals, and other chachkies are mixed with paintings both large and small.

This exhibit plays out Leibowitz’s own stories, beliefs and neuroses, putting them on display for your own exploratory fancy. While the exhibit is small, there is not one inch of it that doesn’t have works covering it.

Leibowitz’s personal life and beliefs are exposed for viewing pleasure in this immersive exhibition. Allow yourself plenty of time and a full iPhone battery in order to take in all of the 350+ pieces.

Cary Leibowitz: Museum Show; On view through March 25th, 2018. Institute of Contemporary Art University of Pennsylvania - 118 South 36th Street, Philadelphia, PA
