The exquisite paintings of record covers and spines by Los Angeles-based artist Dave Muller give us a glimpse into his cultural identity. I Like Your Music I Love Your Music presents a selection of recent works dealing with the ways in which we construct our cultural identities through music--which he represents as a network of aesthetic, social and personal exchanges. Muller's multifaceted practice includes curating, cultural agitating, DJing and record collecting--his collection tops out at 15,000 digital albums. He is particularly well known for his multitextured installations that blend his own sound tracks with his visual work. He is represented by Blum & Poe in Los Angeles and was included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial. This volume is published in collaboration with Spain's Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León (MUSAC), and includes an essay by artist and Director of New York's White Columns, Matthew Higgs.
