The 2019–2020 Out of the Box exhibition series was dedicated to the works of trained architect and conceptual artist Gordon Matta-Clark, whose writings, photographs, films, correspondence, and select artworks, produced between 1969 and 1978, were donated to the CCA by the Estate of Gordon Matta-Clark in 2011. The series is now being expanded through a new installment, created in dialogue with the Generali Foundation Collection at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg.
The first panel of the symposium focuses on the exhibition Out of the Box: Gordon Matta-Clark itself. Martien de Vletter, the CCA’s Associate Director of Collection, introduces the Matta-Clark Collection at the CCA, its relevance for research, and the architectural discourse. Yann Chateigné presents his curatorial approach and installation and what he has found out about Matta-Clark’s thinking through researching the artist’s library and other materials, and Hans Schabus talks about how he perceives Matta-Clark’s life and work as an artist.
In the second panel, Jessamyn Fiore reflects on Gordon’s influence on subsequent artists and art movements, including relational aesthetics. Architect Kathrin Aste speaks about Matta-Clark’s influence on architects and architecture.
