Published on the occasion of the exhibition Adrián Villar Rojas: The Theater of Disappearance at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, October 22, 2017 - May 13, 2018. This catalogue explores Villar Rojas' installation practice through  renderings of institutional commissions of the past five years, documenting his uniquely twenty-first century form of artistic communication.


With this publication, we wish to share the methods by which Adrián Villar Rojas and his team of collaborators engages with the institutions that commission his projects. These disalogues almost always take the form of PDFs, diagrams, screen grabs, 3-D renderings, and images shuttled back and forth between the artist's team and the institution. These documents operate as a lingua franca for the artist's creative, diagnostic, logistical, and strategic methods of production.
