Beautiful Mutants, Mark Mothersbaugh

Mark Mothersbaugh

INFO
Sep 3, 2004 – Oct 16, 2004

You know him from Devo and the “Rushmore” soundtrack, but Mark Mothersbaugh also makes art: found photographs and images “corrected” to create new beings that examine ideas about human symmetry and Rorschach-esque interpretation.  “People are all hiding something,” says Mothersbaugh. “Our asymmetrical exterior hides the true contents of each of us.” Housed in antique frames and leather cases, the mutants represent a collective yet distorted history of human form. 

Please see our updated pandemic policy for fall 2021. Indoor events at 538 Congress Street start in October!
