Gordon Matta-Clark: Anarchitect at The Bronx Museum of the Arts explores how the artist's practice introduced radical ways of subverting urban architecture, beginning with the series of "cuts" he produced in the Bronx in the early 1970s. Some of his best-known projects involved laboriously cutting holes in the floors of abandoned or soon-to-be-demolished buildings or, as with Splitting (1974), meticulously slicing a house in two.

The exhibition has been organized by Antonio Sergio Bessa, Director of Curatorial and Education Programs at The Bronx Museum of the Arts with Jessamyn Fiore, co-director of the Matta-Clark Estate, and includes more than 100 artworks as well as film projections and rarely seen materials from the artist's archive. The exhibition will travel to Jeu de Paume in Paris and the Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn in Estonia.

Splitting, Cutting, Writing, Drawing, Eating...Gordon Matta-Clark
2017
Solo exhibition at Serralves Museum in Porto

May 5 – September 3

Splitting, Cutting, Writing, Drawing, Eating...Gordon Matta-Clark explored the actions and activities that characterized the artist's groundbreaking practice.

The exhibition included letters, drawings, photographs, notebooks, and films related to key projects by Matta-Clark drawn from the archive of the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montréal, and focused on the social and creative aspects of his approach—as he described it, of "making space without building it."

Graffiti: Linda

Year 
1973

David Zwirner is pleased to present Cut, Folded, Pressed & Other Actions at the gallery's 537 West 20th Street location. This group exhibition will highlight modern and contemporary artists who utilize paper as a site of rigorous formal and conceptual inquiry through direct manipulation and engagement with its materiality. The exhibition includes work by Noriko Ambe, Hans Bischoffshausen, Enrico Castellani, Célia Euvaldo,Fernanda Gomes, Oskar Holweck, Vlatka Horvat, Sol LeWitt, Marco Maggi, Anna Maria Maiolino, Gordon Matta-Clark, Eleanore Mikus, Joshua Neustein, Arthur Luiz Piza, Fred Sandback, Mira Schendel, Günther Uecker, and Ignacio Uriarte, among others.

 

Paper, the traditional support of drawing, came to occupy a particular position in conceptual and minimalist practices during the 1960s and 1970s with the rising interest in process and materials. Given the ubiquity and malleability of the medium, artists have continued to interrogate its fundamental properties, formal qualities, and its broader artistic and cultural associations. As the title of the exhibition suggests, many of the works on view evidence the active hand of the artist on and within their very surface, thereby complicating notions of drawing as necessarily dictated by conventional modes of mark-making or graphic lines. In the artists' arrangement of paper in space or in the deliberate manipulation of the sheet(s) using a wide range of aesthetic tactics such as tearing, puncturing, rolling, and pressing, these monochromatic works present subtle and varied investigations of light, space, composition, and materials.
