Myopia in Akron focuses strongly on Mothersbaugh’s daily visual art practice, including an installation of 30,000 postcard-sized drawings the artist has created and utilized for inspiration and exploration throughout his career. Examining Mothersbaugh’s interest in mutation and mirroring, this show will include installations of mirror-image photographs, a full-sized mirrored automobile, and twenty-five ceramic sculptures he refers to as Roly-Polies, among other sculptural works. The Akron exhibition also contains an aural dimension, including music stations which present recordings and original musical scores embellished with Mothersbaugh’s drawings.
