During the brief but highly productive ten years that he worked as an artist, and even more so since his death, Gordon Matta-Clark (1943–1978) has exerted a powerful influence on artists and architects who know his work. This retrospective brings together the breadth of his practice to reveal the unique beauty and radical nature of his punnings, plans, performances, and interventions evident in the many media in which he worked: the sculptural objects (most notably from building cuts), drawings, films, photographs, notebooks, and documentary material.
