Four words every aesthetic junky wants to hear: “Mad Men on acid.”
What do you say about an interactive gallery with a full sized crocodile, an area rug with a black and white ass on it, spaghetti-print walls and floors, and literally more features than we have space to print? It’s got everything. Everything.
Toiletpaper Magazine’s show Toiletpaper Paradise offers a glimpse into their particular aesthetic, and we’re certainly getting an idea or two of what they’re about.
Curated by Italian photographers Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari, the gallery is an extension of the surrealist world they present in Toiletpaper Magazine, a bi-annual publication “that is itself a work of art.”
Toiletpaper Paradise brings many of their past works to live through textiles, furniture pieces, and home accessories. All is accentuated by midcentury modern furniture grounding the gallery in a kind-of-reality thus, “Mad Men on acid.”
None of it matches. But, as is the case with all my favorite art, it doesn’t matter. It’s working on a lot of levels.
Toiletpaper Paradise is taking place at NYC’s Cadillac House, a, “public meeting place where innovators, creators and the curious can find innovation and one another.” The gallery opened Feb. 9 and will remain on view until April 12.
The gallery is interactive, and people are taking full advantage.

It’s sure to be a destination for Instagram aesthetic curators and the “Boyfriends of Instagram” that make all those perfectly stylized pictures possible.
This is not the time to leave your loudest print at home.
