Adrián Villar Rojas: The Theater of Disappearance

  • MOCA Geffen 152 South Central Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)

Join art muse and contemporary artist Carter Mull in examining the work of Adrián Villar Rojas at MOCA's Geffen Contemporary. The Theater of Disappearance is a site-specific installation inside the MOCA Geffen's warehouse wherein Villar Rojas transforms his singular artistic practice into an ongoing search for a sense of belongings in an ambiguous time and space. Villar Rojas's objects slip and slide between past, present, and future; their fragmented existance images a post-human environment that begs the question, "what happens after the end of art?" While Villar Rojas's practice might best be understood as sculptural, when considered as a whole, The Theater of Disappearance blurs the line between sculpture, instillation, environmental-art, and institutional critique.
