Exhibition
Last months of the Adrian Villar Rojas exhibition at MOCA LA

15/March/2018



Los Angeles, California


The Theater of Disappearance at the warehouse space of the Geffen Contemporary at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (MOCA) will remain open until May 13, 2018.


The artworks by Adrián Villar-Rojas (Rosario, Argentina, 1980) questions the art market from an artistic perspective through "post-human" works of art that challenge the reproducibility, tradability, and transportability of art. Villar-Rojas creates environments and objects that appear to be in search of their place in time. 


Villar-Rojas uses discarded materials and fragments from other artistic projects produced around the world. Petrified wood from Turin, stratified columns from Sharjah, and silicone molds from Istanbul are repurposed in the MOCA's exhibition. His interventions invite viewers to consider fragments that inhabit a slippery space between the future, the past, and an alternate reality in the present. His projects are carefully planned to underscore their temporary nature: that which doomed to disappearing and cannot be preserved.


The exhibition curated by Bryan Barcena, MOCA's Research Assistant for Latin American Art and Helen Molesworth, the ex-Head Curator of MOCA is accompanied by a catalogue that explores Villar Rojas' installation practice.
