An exhibition of videos, photographic works, and works on paper spanning the short and intensely productive career of Gordon Matta-Clark. Matta-Clark’s projects disorient, dissect, destroy, and challenge architectural concepts. The exhibition presented projects such as Tree Dance (1971), Bingo (1974), Conical Intersect (1975), Underground Paris (1977), and Office Baroque (1977), through a rich variety of the sculptural, graphic, photographic, and filmic media in which he worked.
