Gordon Matta-Clark: Anarchitect at The Bronx Museum of the Arts will explore 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 is 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 then travel to Jeu de Paume in Paris and the Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn in Estonia.
