The Super Thing: NYC goes DEVO at 3rd Ward
Opening reception: Saturday, May 10, 2008
Press preview: 7 – 8 pm | Public reception: 8 – 10 pm | After party/LIVE Music: 10 pm – 12 am
A DEVO inspired group show experience of art, adventure and music featuring 20 Postcard Diaries prints by Mark Mothersbaugh! The Super Thing art exhibition and music event is dedicated to the zealous, jerky synth-powered, midwestern heroes of DEVO and showcases art which shares their bold aesthetics, politics and humor.
Opening night will be a Super Thing Circus with live music by Omega Clash, Dawoud The Renagade Sufi and Ultrabunny, interactive art, limited edition merchandise, and a cyber appearance by Mark Mothersbaugh himself. Guests are encouraged to get dressed DEVO style! And photographers will be on hand to capture the insanity. Curator Alison B. Levy reminds us, "Collectively, we creatively, are ready to do what we must do for the super thing! Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are DEVO!"
