Matt Mullican: Untitled. Renowned for his immense banners, posters and oil stick rubbings, Matt Mullican draws from a personal source of forms and symbols to create his utopian city views. His sign-like works are reflections of the familiar pictograms that one would find in the halls of an airport or a train station. For MoMA PS1, the artist has installed five steel flagstones into the floor of the boiler room. The shape of the artist’s stones reflect the form of the unused flagstones already a part of the boiler room. Untitled is located in the Basement Boiler Room.
