Gordon Matta Clark

Posted on August 17, 2010

Gordon Matta-Clark was born in New York in 1943, the son of the Chilean surrealist painter Roberto Matta and his American partner, Anne Clark. He studied architecture at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, USA, from 1962-68, and French literature at the Sorbonne in Paris, France, from 1962-63. Because of his radical, socially critical and innovative work, the artist, who died an early death in New York in 1978, still ranks among the most significant personalities of a New York art scene which had begun to spread through the suburb of Soho in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
