Gordon Matta-Clark in BARCELONA at MACBA

07 June 2012 – 21 Oct. 2012 MACBA –  BARCELONA: “OFFICE BARROQUE” PORTIFOLIO

The thematic thread to the exhibition is provided by Office Baroque (1977), one of Matta Clark most important works, produced at the invitation of Florent Bex, director of the Internationaal Cultureel Centrum (ICC) in Antwerp. This building cut has been defined as the “most beautiful flight of light, air and time”. The title of this masterpiece not only alludes to Rubens (the intervention was carried out as part of commemorations for the 400th anniversary of the Flemish painter’s birth) but is also, implicitly, one of Matta-Clark’s jokes, as Office Baroque sounds like Office Broke, an allusion to the bankruptcy of capitalism. The show also includes 10 drawings from the series “Sky Hooks” (1974), produced by Matta-Clark shortly before his death and recently acquired by the MACBA Foundation.
