City Slivers

1976, 15 min, color, silent, 16 mm film on HD video

City Slivers is a formal investigation of New York's urban architecture. Created to be projected on the exterior facade of a building, it was shown for the first time in the open-air exhibition ARCADES and later in the Holly Solomon Gallery.

Filming and Editing Assistance: Betsy Sussler. Partially funded by National Endowment for the Arts and a New York State CAPS Grant.


Where possible, the Matta-Clark Estate prefers that the works are exhibited from film. In exhibition, City Slivers should be projected into a corner or onto an uneven surface.
