This Will Help Them

Clayton Brothers: Inside Out is the first major museum exhibition of the work of Rob and Christian Clayton. Featuring their paintings and mixed-media installations, the exhibition surveys the brothers’ edgy aesthetic inspired by California skateboard and surf culture, punk rock, folk art, cartoons, and street art. The Clayton Brothers have been working collaboratively since 1996, constructing complex narratives that introduce memorable characters and comment wryly on contemporary life.

This exhibition is organized by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) and curated by Stephen Fleischman, Director of MMoCA.

Support for this exhibition has been provided by the Richard J. Massey Foundation for the Arts and Sciences and Beth Rudin DeWoody.
