Art in America reports that Maccarone Gallery’s newly expanded space will open fully next month with a show dedicated to the life and work of Andy Kaufman.

“His influence on contemporary art is undeniable, and this show acknowledges that,” the art historian Jonathan Berger, who curated the show, told the magazine. “It’s a fact that he’s influenced people like Paul McCarthy, Mike Kelley, Trisha Donnelly, Laurie Simmons and Maurizio Cattelan.”

Participant Inc. and MoMA PS1 will also host events in conjunction with the show.
