Curator at Large Klaus Ottmann looks on as Preparators Bill Koberg and Alec MacKaye install a new work by Leo Villareal. The work, called Scramble (2011) and made of concentric squares of LEDs, was inspired by Villareal’s participation in a panel discussion at the Phillips with Klaus and painter Frank Stella last June.

D.C. audiences may be familiar with Villareal’s work from his transformational installation Multiverse in the National Gallery of Art’s concourse walkway.
