Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia
Myopia is the first retrospective of the work of Mark Mothersbaugh, chronicling the beginning of his career in the early 1970s through the present. Best known as the lead singer of the American New Wave band DEVO, Mothersbaugh has also been a prolific visual artist since the band’s inception. Much of his artwork originates from ink drawings on postcards which he has been producing daily since the 1970s. Filled with outlandish characters and surreal settings, these postcards provide the basic imagery for a large part of his diverse body of work on view which includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, rugs and videos. Combining handmade qualities and elements of consumer culture, Motherbaugh’s work explores the relationship between technology and individuality in an impersonal consumer driven society. Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, the exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.
