Matt Mullican: The MIT Project
1990, MIT List Visual Arts Center
Over the past 15 years Mullican has developed a lexicon of stylized signs and images, and a variety of structures for the signs to organize our world and describe its systems and relationships. An extraordinary range of media have comprised his program, including bulletin boards, fabric banners, posters, stained glass, carved stones, rubbings, tapestries and, most recently, the invisible world of the computer data bank. Introduction by Katy Kline. Essay by Johannes Meinhardt (English translation from German) and interview with the artist by Michael Tarantino.
