Mark Mothersbaugh @ MIA

My friend Kevin recently took me to see the exhibition Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. The show does acknowledge Mothersbaugh's recent film scoring work and pioneering experimental rocking with Devo. But it delves much further to explore his performance, visual and sound art, gathering an idiosyncratic body of work that I found tremendously satisfying to witness.

My favorite part of the show: the large-scale, automated sounding sculptures, which can be glimpsed in the video below. Simply put, these things blew my mind.

If you're in Minneapolis/ St Paul, you've still got some time to catch it. If you're elsewhere, this show may or may not be coming to a museum near you. I can't really tell, even by looking it up...
