Martha Mysko @ COOP, Jun 4 – 25

6 June 2016

New York-based artist Martha Mysko is presenting solo show, Blue Tiers curated by Good Weather and hosted at COOP, running June 4 to 25.

Mysko will make an installation that is formed through and around a group show with several artists, including Tony Hope, Talon Gustafson and Alika Cooper, to mirror and continue the tiered effect already offered via the exchange between the two gallery or curatorial spaces, based in Arkansas and Nashville respectively.

The press release takes lyrics from the song ‘Blue Tears’ and then underneath cites a short list of names: Dolly Parton, who sung the song in 1971, Greg Fullerson, whose band was called Blue Tears, and TLC’s Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopez.

Mysko who works mainly with installation and publications, arranging evocative imagery that often alludes to domestic space, has shown in Sadie Halles Projects and with Good Weather at LA’s Printed Matter book fair.

See the COOP website for more details.**

I am a genius (and there’s nothing I can do about it)

10 September 2012

Prolific? You can describe him like that we guess. A winner… and certainly a sinner, a defying composer, the son of a famous musician, maybe also a pioneer and above all.. an enigma. R. Stevie Moore, few know him well, we tried to get to know him last july when he was about to release Lo Fi High Fives, and we knew this documentary of eccentricities and “situations” was coming… and here it is!

Thousands of songs after, French transdisciplinary artist Arnaud Maguet (& Hifiklub) decides to film “I am a genius (and there’s nothing I can do about it)” doc as a homage to this lo-fi legend. 52 minutes of DIY confessions, music… and exhausting fun. A must-see piece which has just been released under Disques en Rotin with a limited 300-copy 7″ EP containing four tracks of the doc soundtrack and that can be ordered this way.

I am a genius
I am a genius

And for those who can’t wait… the doc can be seen this way.
