August 25 – October 4, 2008
USFCAM West Gallery

MashUp is a group exhibition that traces the history of destruction as a creative force in visual art, and its resonance in the mass culture realm of popular music. Inflicting damage for audio effect and visual ends, MashUp features newly commissioned installations by artists Pedro Reyes and Ted Riederer—plus, an historical array of art and artifacts dating from the 1960s-on by Czech Fluxus “Broken Music” pioneer Milan Kníák, The Art Guys, Christian Marclay and The Plasmatics. Guest Curated by Jade Dellinger, and organized by CAM.

In conjunction with MashUp at USFCAM, Flight 19’s exhibition space at Downtown Tampa’s Union Station will present a site-specific project Bob Wysocki: Post Metal (August 30 – October 5).
