Step Out (a new space in SIB where architecture transcends onto other fields) * Matta-Clark artist and architect Is considered one of the most influential postwar artists. His radical methods of subverting architecture and the urban landscape began with a series of "cuts" he produced in the Bronx borough in New York in the early 1970s. Some of his best-known projects involved laboriously cutting holes in the floors or walls of abandoned or soon-to-be-demolished buildings or, as with Splitting (1974), slicing a house in two. As Martin Filler writes in The New York Review of Books Daily, "Matta-Clark’s audacious hybridization and redefinition of three mediums—architecture, sculpture, and painting—opened new modes of contemporary expression."
