Gary Card, one of London’s best known set designers and illustrators, will be taking over Phillips‘ London Gallery with a private selling exhibition titled “HYSTERICAL.”

The exhibition will showcase and sell works by the likes of Erik Parker, Harold Ancart, Cindy Sherman, Nicolas Party, Kenny Scharf, Andre Butzer, Ugo Rondinone, Paul McCarthy and Joyce Pensato. Gary Card has created an immersive backdrop to house this vast selection of artwork, which each draw upon on farcical and neurotic themes within contemporary art.

Miety Heiden, Phillips’ head of private sales, said in a press release, “The set design is not just the scenery or the background – it is part of the narrative material that will enchant audiences and transport them to an alternate universe. Works will be presented in a new light, environment and context – “HYSTERICAL” is an all-encompassing work of art.”

Gary Card added, “I want the viewer to be thrown into a darkly comic world, part psychedelic fever dream, part saccharine cartoon chaos. Like finding a tarantula in a bunch of bananas these works capture something inherently sinister while appearing equally absurd and disarming.”

Gary Card has previously worked with COMME des GARÇONS and Dover Street Market, making headpieces for CDG’s SS12 show and producing a limited-run of toys which are sold in DSM stores. “HYSTERICAL” by Gary Card will open to the public from July 18 to August 21, 2019.

In other news, Yayoi Kusama will be returning to the David Zwirner gallery in New York later this Fall.
