Eddie Villanueva created a site-responsive mural that riffs on the architecture of MMoCA’s Caesar Pelli-designed building. Spanning the museum’s lobby wall, the piece is crafted from the artist’s standard repertoire of utilitarian materials, such as particle board, Styrofoam, carpet scraps, Plexiglas, and photocopies. Villanueva often reuses material salvaged from his past installations; elements are broken apart, recombined, and reconstituted into different settings. New articulations of reused fragments give his work a rich and layered material history. This process also results in materials that reveal a simultaneous accumulation of markings and deterioration of form—a condition that echoes the artist’s interest in the specific venues his installations occupy. Like Villanueva’s recycled materials, the physical spaces he works within are reused for different purposes, but bear traces of past intentions.
