CUTS AND CROSS SECTIONS:
THE FILMS OF GORDON MATTA-CLARK
Saturday, September 16, 7PM
$10 / Free for Aurora Members
This program presents rarely seen films made in connection with the deconstructionist projects of "anarchitect" Gordon Matta-Clark in the 1970s. Trained in architecture and raised on Dada, Matta-Clark reoriented aesthetic assumptions and urban realities by literally tearing apart and cutting into abandoned buildings. Given the temporary nature of his site-specific alterations, these films are the lasting documents of his work and process. Curated by Peter Lucas, the program includes Fresh Kill (1972), Bingo/Ninths (1974), Conical Intersect (1975), and Office Baroque (1977). A wall projection of Matta-Clark’s City Slivers (1976) will start at 6:30pm preceding the main screening.
For this and other Aurora programs in the coming months, all bar donations will go toward Harvey relief efforts.
