Gordon Matta-Clark / Retrospective / Whitney Museum, New York

The Whitney Museum of American Art presents the first full-scale retrospective in twenty years of Gordon Matta-Clark. Gordon Matta-Clark: “You Are the Measure” (February 22 – June 3, 2007) includes Matta-Clark’s major works and presents numerous projects. Gordan Matta-Clark (1943 – 1978) is best known for his “building cuts”. Although all of the buildings he transformed were demolished shortly after he altered them, his work lives on in the photographs, films, drawings, and building fragments. The exhibition’s curator is Elisabeth Sussman, Curator and Sondra Gilman Curator of Photography at the Whitney. Impressions from the press preview, February 20, 2007.
