Adrián Villar Rojas National Observatory of Athens

In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change. 

The Theater of Disappearance is a major site-specific installation by Adrián Villar Rojas, commissioned and organized by NEON at the National Observatory of Athens, Hill of the Nymphs.

This commission is Villar Rojas’ negotiation with an archaeological site for the first time as he radically alters both the indoor and outdoor space of the National Observatory. The whole site undergoes a transformation – architectural, horticultural and emotional.

The Theater of Disappearance is an umbrella title and part of four separate exhibitions taking place in 2017 across Europe and the US through new independent commissions by all institutions involved. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (April 14-October 29), Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria (May 13-Aug. 27), NEON, Athens, (June 1-Sept. 24, 2017) and the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, Los Angeles (Oct. 22-Feb. 26, 2018).
