SXSW Interview: Mark Mothersbaugh

Thursday, March 17
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 16AB
531 E 4th St

Mark Mothersbaugh joins curator Adam Lerner about the artist's extraordinary career in both music and visual art from the decals he made before he co-founded DEVO through his recent music-making machines. Coinciding with his traveling retrospective exhibition, currently at the Contemporary Austin, this conversation will provide an overview to the artist's enormous body of work in virtually every medium. Though many people know Mothersbaugh as the frontman for DEVO, a composer for Wes Anderson films, or even as a printmaker, this conversation will draw out the connecting threads that run through his diverse artistic practice.
