About the exhibition of Win McCarthy


Win McCarthy presents his first solo show at KW.

His art explores relationships between you, other people and the city.

He creates photography, text, and installations to show these feelings.

The exhibition focuses on how the individual is connected to the world through looking at the world. She shows how anyone experiences the world differently.  

For the exhibition McCarthy wrote a book that gives more insight into his work.

It is called Common Ruin.
