“The restaurant Food was a remarkable place, created and run by an exceptional group of artists at an extraordinary historical moment. With Gordon Matta-Clark serving as anarchistic genius in residence, the restaurant was at once a meeting place, a business and a conceptual work of art…The exhibition, accompanied by this publication is composed of four related sections…the first sets the conceptual stage for the restaurant by exploring the food related work Gordon Matta-Clark before the restaurant opened and during its lifetime. The second presents objects and documentation that illustrate and excavate the restaurant itself. The third shows the important role [of the] magazine Avalanche. The fourth describes the collaborative nature of Food and the alternative space 112 Greene St. where the artists who worked, ate, and hung out at Food installed their work, performed, and collaborated on projects.” From the introduction by Catherine Morris
