in 1998, Eyedrum is a non-profit
organization developing an interdisciplinary approach to the arts
by incorporating a wide range of contemporary art, music and new
media. Centrally located downtown, this unique gallery continues
to intrigue the community, remaining critics' choice for the best
venue for emerging artists in town.
The huge space was perfect for the display of 30+ Mothersbaugh prints,
and included a wine/beer bar, sound system, and ample room to mingle.
Mark was again thwarted from attending by last minute scoring duties
on a new Wes Anderson film, unfortunately.
However, the steady stream of attendees were delighted with the
rare/unreleased Mothersbaugh/Devo music which played throughout
the night, which had some folks happily twitching & dancing
while they pondered Mark's works.
I was impressed with how many different age groups were represented
at the reception, and with how many interesting creative types I
met that night. (see photos for details).
Thanks to the Eyedrum crew for making it all happen (Travis, Andy,
Woody, Richard, Ann-Laura, Hormuz, Susan), and to everyone who visited
over the course of the show.
