Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh’s is set to find his Wes Anderson scores become part of a new exhibition held in honour of the whimsical director’s work.
The ex-Devo legend has crafted the soundtrack to a swathe of Anderson films including Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Life Aquatic, helping to add to the distinct Andersonian aesthetic that fans have grown to love.
It is this very aesthetic that will be celebrated at the exhibition at Tulsa’s Philbrook Museum of Art, in a grand display dubbed Accidentally Wes Anderson.
The title comes from an Instagram account of the same name that focuses on finding the director’s unique, and usually symmetrical, style outside of his movies. The cream of the global finds were then depicted in a book which the exhibition will draw on.
The official website for the quirk-finding phenomenon reads: “Join us to discover the most interesting and idiosyncratic places on Earth.”
Adding: “Inspired by the unique vision of director Wes Anderson’s films, this book travels to every continent to tell the extraordinary and unexpected true stories behind more than two hundred stunning locations.
The exhibition will run from September 17th up until the 2nd of January next year.
