Description

"Transmission" is a comprehensive examination of the relationship between the work of renowned surrealist Roberto Matta (1912-2002) and his son, conceptual artist, Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978). The book explores how Matta-Clark's exposure to artistic circles of his father's generation influenced the direction that his art would take, and how that played a role in the evolution of 1970s conceptual art. Essays draw parallels between the way each artist absorbed artistic and cultural trends to conceive new significant models for art. Sculpture, paintings, and works on paper by Matta, and sculpture, photographs, and works on paper by Matta-Clark are illustrated.
