Spotlight: On Gordon Matta-Clark
On Other Architectures: Carlos Basualdo 

Thomas Crow has discussed Gordon Matta-Clark’s South American lineage, travels, and interests—particularly in relation to the concept of “anthropophagy,” or cultural cannibalism, a means to “devour” a colonizing culture. Carlos Basualdo, curator of contemporary art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and curator of Tropicália: A Revolution in Brazilian Culture, will take up an exemplar of this concept—Hélio Oiticica—and discuss the Brazilian artist’s parallel investigations into social dimensions for art and its publics.
