Known for his brash personality and his inimitable art practice, Frank Gaard has made an indelible mark on the Twin Cities’ visual arts community. Frank Gaard: Poison & Candy, the largest-ever survey exhibition of Gaard’s work, runs from January 26 through May 6, 2012 at the Walker Art Center.
This survey of over a 100 works features monumental tableaux paintings from the 70s-80s, signature portraits of friends, and fellow art-world denizens, a raucous installation of new work that includes paintings on DVDs, CDs, and 78-rpm records, a selection of his extraordinary diaristic and at times salacious sketchbooks, and original drawings and issues of Artpolice, the cult zine Gaard published from 1974 to 1994.
