Fluency across mediums, collaboration, and material production engender the work of Carter Mull. Reflecting critically on the decentralization of mass communication by establishing speculative archives within his own prodigious output, Mull performs multiple roles within culture at large engaging both the production and the circulation of images. From painter and photographer, to collector and curator, to designer and publisher, Mull's practice treats the boundaries around segments of culture like parts of a montage, to be at times delineated, and at other times joined in an illicit union.
Carter Mull's work is in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, LACMA and Hammer Museums in Los Angeles and the Whitney and MoMA collections in New York. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at the Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen in Switzerland, CAPC Bordeaux in France, Fused Space, San Francisco and Lundgren Gallery, Palma de Mallorca. He spent key formative years in New York. Although he travels often, he has been based in Los Angeles since 2004.
