Blum &\; Poe is pleased to announce our seventh solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Dave Muller.

\n

Da ve Muller is endlessly fascinated with music in all its forms and everythin g it permeates\, from the graphic residue that is the subject of his artwor k - record sleeves\, CD cases\, disco balls\, iPods - to his curatorial rol e as a deejay. His work is a visual depiction of his musical obsession\, ch arting how music infiltrates and shapes our realities and serving as a port rait of its cultural impact.

\n

< span style="font-size: small\;">Mul ler's current body of work uses the final chorus line from the Beatles song  She Loves You as a starting point to reveal as much about the hype of "Be atlemania" as the decade itself. Presented as a musical timeline from 1962 to 1970\, the exhibition aurally and visually chronicles the Top 100 hits f rom each of those years through nine rooms within the exhibition. Utilizing computers as jukeboxes\, Muller conjures brief moments of time travel\, le tting each song relive part of its former life. Interestingly\, the Top 100 were not the radio hits of the 1960's. Progressive rock music had not yet replaced Sinatra-era standards\, emphasizing the discrepancy between what w as charted and what our memories recall. Further enhancing this revelation are Muller's works on paper\, which are selectively placed throughout the r ooms. His unique painterly style - loose and whimsical\, yet deliberate and factual - depicts appropriated images familiar and forgotten. Together wit h the room's music\, Muller's environment pits cultural nostalgia against r eality\, creating a reconsidered portrait of the decade.
