Gordon Matta-Clark’s Legacy

About

This retrospective celebrates the brilliance and radical nature of Gordon Matta-Clark’s work in various media: sculptural objects (most, notably, from building cuts), drawings, films, photographs, notebooks, and documentary materials. Matta-Clark’s work has particular relevance for Chicago. He created his last major work on the site of the MCA’s original building in 1978. The project, titled Circus orThe Caribbean Orange, consisted of massive cuts into a neighboring townhouse before its annexation and renovation into galleries.
