Motto Melbourne and Utopian Slumps present:

Don Carlos
by Thomas Jeppe

Designed by Black & White, Los Angeles
Published by Surpllus

An interview with Don Carlos Ashida, Mexico’s biggest seashell collector, featuring approximately 25 colour illustrations. Conducted in Guadalajara in 2012, the discussion broaches themes of collecting strategies, aesthetic hierarchies, family dynamics, ethical limits, parallel approaches to art and nature, and the taxonomical urge.

Don Carlos forms an accompaniment to the exhibition Seaside Vernacular, currently on show and running until April 27th, at Utopian Slumps, 33 Guildford Lane, Melbourne.

Wednesday April 24th, 18-21hr

Magic Johnston / Motto Melbourne

Note: Special Guadalajara-recipe Micheladas will be served at the event.
