Passing Through Architecture: The Biological Art of Gordon Matta-Clark

A lecture by Mark Wigley

Gordon Matta-Clark graduated from the architecture school at Cornell in 1968 then spent the 10 years before his early death relentlessly challenging the limits of art and architecture—most famously in a series of vertiginous “building-cuts” that became cult works that continue to inspire artists and architects today. This talk will ZOOM into those transgressive surgical operations to show how they were actually biological works.
