Gordon Matta-Clark: "You Are the Measure" (Whitney Museum of American Art)

Qualifying the ancient Greek saying "Man is the measure," Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978) asserted instead "You are the measure," conveying the defining theme in an oeuvre that would exert a powerful influence on fellow artists and architects. In artworks that combined minimalist, conceptual, and performative practices, Matta-Clark gave primary importance to the individual and considerations of everyday life. This comprehensive book incorporates important new information from the Matta-Clark archive, presenting a compelling reappraisal of the unique beauty and radical nature of Matta-Clark's punnings, plans, performances, and interventions evident in the many media in which he worked: sculptural objects (most notably from building cuts), drawings, films, photographs, and documentary material.
