112 GREENE STREET: THE EARLY YEARS (1970-1974)
(David Zwirner and Radius Books, 2012)
112 Greene Street: The Early Years (1970-1974) is the culmination of an exhibition by the same name that opened at David Zwirner in January 2011. This extensively researched and historically important book brings together a number of works exhibited at 112 Greene Street (including works by Matta-Clark, Vito Acconci, Tina Girouard, Suzanne Harris, Jene Highstein, Larry Miller, Alan Saret, and Richard Serra), as well as extensive interviews with many of the artists involved in the space, a fascinating timeline of all the activity at 112 Greene Street in the early years, and installation views of the 2011 exhibition.
The text and interviews in the book are prepared by Jessamyn Fiore, curator of last year’s David Zwirner exhibition. In 2007, she became Director of Thisisnotashop, a not-for-profit gallery space in Dublin, which supported emerging artists, and co-founded The Writing Workshop in 2007, which functions as a collaborative forum for writers and artists. Fiore assists her mother Jane Crawford, Matta-Clark’s widow, in the management of the Estate of Gordon Matta-Clark.
