This event has ended.

Gordon Matta-Clark (1943–1978) was active mainly in New York in the 1970s. Despite having died an untimely death at the age of thirty-five, he has continued to attract many followers in various fields including art, architecture, street culture and food. This is the first full-scale retrospective of the pioneering artist in Asia. It presents 200 items including sculptures, videos, photographs, drawings and related materials, offering an overview of his multifaceted activities. “Splitting: Four Corners” comes to Japan for the first time as one of the largest three-dimensional works in his renowned “building cuts” series in which he cut buildings into sections. As Tokyo begins to shrink ahead of the rest of the world, Matta-Clark’s buoyant, cool and poetic ideas will provide various clues for each of us to think about what we can do now to live a richer life.
