Mark Mothersbaugh – Exhibition Photos

This past weekend we opened a solo show of Mark Mothersbaugh’s rugs at NOWhere Limited. The special AP edition rugs are available in limited supply at this link.

Keep an eye out for the show report, coming soon to Mutato Visual. Also check out the great article that Vince Darcangelo wrote for the Boulder Daily Camera. The piece also ran on the front page of the Colorado Daily.

I love the quiet before the storm. One of the special privileges of owning a gallery is being able to spend time with the work without interruption. Experiencing the exhibit as a whole has, I feel, led me deeper into the world and mind of Mark Mothersbaugh. It has been a pleasure talking with everyone about these amazing rugs. The overwhelming sentiment has been that they “Really tie the room together.”

Mark was working on a project in Vancouver but was able to carve out some time in his insanely busy schedule to talk to visitors via live video conference. He entertained a wide array of questions and proceeded to give us views of his hotel room, including the contents of the mini-bar. Mark also taunted DEVO fans with a demo disc for the first studio album in nearly twenty years. The album is due to be released this Fall. Keep in touch with Club Devo for details.

Thanks to everyone that kept the gallery packed this weekend. Special thanks to Mark’s representative Michael Pilmer for traveling to Colorado. We had a great time, looking forward seeing you again. And to all of the friends of NOWhere Limited that have come through again and again.
