Dave Muller, known as a dynamic and multitalented force in the Los Angeles art scene, is the subject of the exhibition Dave Muller: Connections, curated by Amada Cruz, director of the CCS Museum. Muller’s ongoing series of drawings-his personal interpretations of exhibition announcements and invitations for shows by artists whose work he admires-will be the centerpiece of the exhibition. Inspired by amateur flyers created by fans of indie-rock bands, Muller began producing watercolors based on the actual exhibition announcements of artists he admired. But these acts of homage are not merely copies, as Muller transforms them and makes them his own. He always retains the factual information, but subverts and reinterprets it with wry humor. This exhibition is supported by grants from the Peter Norton Family Foundation, Martin and Rebecca Eisenberg, and Kenneth L. Freed.
Essays by Amada Cruz and Matthew Higgs.
