Mullican

An historic exhibition of artist Matt Mullican's works from the 70's and 80's opens in New York next Tuesday 9 May 2006 at Tracy Williams. The show will include an exciting array of mediums, including rubbings, posters, drawings, bulletin boards, and flags, all of which combine reflections of the public and private sectors and reveal the characteristic urban themes of his work. As one of the first artists to work on the super computer in 1986, he utilized then-new technology to compose an architecture of complex cosmology in a group of light boxes that will make up the final segment of the show. It's also apparent how timeless his oeuvre remains when you consider, for example, the "Mullican Life" and "Mullican Death" posters made in the 80s which today could provide apt, social commentary on the current mass branding campaigns of certain mega-corporate, materialistic cogs of our capitalistic wheel.
