Gordon Matta-Clark Opening at the Pulitzer

Click on the images to enlarge. A sunset picture from the rooftop might not be in order but seeing clear skies moving in is very welcome this week.
The Pulitzer is a fine building and a fine place for this exhibit but I think the point is being over-emphasized to the detriment of Matta-Clark's work. Why not take it a step further and cut a hole in the Ando?
Matta-Clark's work is a visual philosophy statement and a call to mindfulness about the built environment. His cuts into buildings gave a new perspective. I think carrying this perspective in our imaginations and applying it in the field is the directive embodied in the work.
