The exhibition examines the artist’s pioneering social, relational, and activist approach and highlights the political dialogue inherent in the artist’s artistic interventions. On view are over 100 artworks by the artist, rarely seen materials from his archive, and immersive film projections.
Gordon Matta-Clark’s work conveys a potent critique of architecture’s role vis-à-vis the capitalist system. The exhibition highlights the political dialogue inherent in the artist’s artistic interventions—from his concern for the extreme plight of the homeless, his interest in direct community engagement, his belief that we should expand our lived experience of a city into its underground and other inaccessible spaces, and his commentary on development and socioeconomic stratification.
