Paul Brach Lecture Series

Mara McCarthy is a curator based in Los Angeles and owner of The Box. Since launching the gallery in 2007, McCarthy has curated an uncompromising program concentrating on radical artists, many of whose careers took off in the 1960s and ’70s. The gallery has hosted shows by influential artists such as Judith Bernstein and McCarthy’s father, Paul, but gives equal precedence to neglected figures. In 2012, McCarthy curated ‘The Historical Box’ for Hauser & Wirth, aiming to bring overlooked American artists before a wider audience.
