Public Space One’s art auction this year was Osmotic Radiance.
I contributed this glassy resin paint petal piece.. and instead of Mustard-In-Law’s annual tape box set, we made a special VHS tape.. and the auction was exhibited in Film Scene’s very long windowfront.. and Mustard-In-Law performed virtually for the closing reception!
This is a DVD of four collaborative performances between Mustard-In-Law and acclaimed comic artist Victor Cayro, who just so happens to have a thing about pouring mustard on himself! It was an ambitious project, editing this disc. The laughter squeezed from those who see it leaves them paralyzed in spastic chortles. Eventually, I overcame the potency and was able to weave audience members’ footage onto our own to achieve more perspectives on each glorious drizzle. Bonus menu includes a slideshow of art from Victor’s HAVE SEX exhibit, which is where one of these performances occurred. Cover art and handwriting by the living mustard himself, Victor Cayro. Released by Dubuque label Personal Archives.
Public Space One turned sixteen and held their annual art auction. This is Mustard-In-Law’s submission. 16 sprawling tracks (3.5 hours) on three clear tapes & an infinite LOOP tape, dedicated to your quest for small ‘a’ art. Compiled by Tyler for our favorite art spot, with original collage cover by Jay.
Once again, our beloved PublicSpaceOne called on the doers of do to raise funds with an art auction, and Mustard-In-Law dripped up to the plate with a six tape box set.
We provided a listening station and easy access to the contents.
The booklet was six feet long!
Although the physical release went to the highest bidder, you can download the entire 9-hours (!) of audio, along with high-quality beeps of the super-long booklets at this link here:Â mustard-in-law.bandcamp.com/album/dear-futureÂ Â Any money made from these downloads goes straight to PS1, to keep small a art alive in our town.
Listen & weep……………………………………………
Also, I sold this glistening painting of mine.
The winner now knows everything we know, may they live forever in mustard.
Awkward Portal was an auction by and for our beloved local art community space, Public Space One.Â In addition to contributing a painting to the auction, Mustard-In-Law made a special four-tape box set, named Awkward Portal.

At 6pm on August 16, 2016, we hit record on the video camera and proceeded to film a battery of prepared visual stations without stopping the recording until the 30 minute mark. At 9pm, we arrived at the Governor’s Mansion and set up our sound equipment facing a blank wall. Using the projector on the camera, we splashed the recording from earlier onto the wall. All of the sound was improvised live while watching the film. The audience gathered behind us, able to see both the projection and what we were doing with our hands.
Mustard-In-Law “Grey Poupon for Bing Bong” appears on the compilationÂ “Pfff! Monument to The Noise” from Italian web-label, MAV Records.Â Besides being full of genuinely profound vaporized audio, the cool thing about this release is that it does have a special physical edition.Â There is a USB dead drop in Collegno, Italy, which houses the files, free to access by any passer-by.
