Armory Week 2017 Fair’s Fare: Highlights from NADA New York By Anne Doran and Andrew Russeth Posted 03/03/17 1:33 pm ANNE DORAN Original Pictures artist Paul McMahon’s vintage works on paper—altered postcards, scrawled rants, and MTA posters stolen, altered, and replaced where they were found— looked funky and subversive at Brooklyn’s 321 Gallery. Also on view: a photograph of the artist’s baby daughter with a cartoon face drawn on top of the picture by its young subject.

Paul McMahon at 321 Gallery, Brooklyn, at NADA New York 2017. I second Anne’s enthusiasm for Paul McMahon, an undersung macher of the Pictures movement. The display of his mordant, wild appropriations of found images from the 1970s and ’80s was a superb surprise at the booth of Brooklyn’s 321 Gallery. As Jefferson Beauregard “Jeff” Sessions III clings to power in Washington D.C., it was an especial pleasure to see an image of the Washington Monument scrawled with DIRTY/FILTHY/SLOPPY/SCUM. Someone give McMahon a proper museum show! (excerpted)
