Gordon Matta-Clark's Office Baroque

Recently came across Matta-Clark's work.  Dead at 35, Matta-Clark was active in the early-to-late seventies.  His Office Baroque is especially notable.  Cutting into the floors of abandoned buildings & transforming these spaces is genius.

Here's NYT on a recent retrospective on Matta-Clark held at the Whitney.

Hi Bryan,

I was also just introduced to Matta-Clark's work and am excited to learn and think about the ideas connected to it. There'll be another exhibition at The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis, MO, beginning this Fall. Here's the link for the future web catalog: You can read about the exhibition and make comments at the blog
