"Ms. Fiore — a playwright and the daughter of Jane Crawford, Matta-Clark’s widow, who manages his estate — has done a nice job resurrecting the riotous spirit of the era, allowing the participants to tell stories that circle, overlap and sometimes contradict one another."

Randy Kennedy, The New York Times.

112 Greene Street

The Early Years, 1970-1974

Published by David Zwirner
Text by Jessamyn Fiore.

Featured image is of Gordon Matta-Clark installing "Walls paper" at 112 Greene Street in October, 1972.112 Greene Street was one of New York’s first alternative, artist-run venues. Started in October 1970 by Jeffrey Lew, Gordon Matta-Clark and Alan Saret, among others, the building became a focal point for a young generation of artists seeking a substitute for New York’s established gallery circuit, and provided the stage for a singular moment of artistic invention and freedom that was at its peak between 1970 and 1974. This extensively researched volume is the culmination of David Zwirner’s January 2011 exhibition of the same name, gathering a number of works exhibited at 112 Greene Street (by Matta-Clark, Vito Acconci, Tina Girouard, Suzanne Harris, Jene Highstein, Larry Miller, Alan Saret and Richard Serra among others), alongside extensive interviews with many of the artists involved, a timeline of the early years at 112 Greene Street and installation views of the 2011 exhibition.

FROM THE BOOK
"There we were, working in there like a bunch of crazies in dirty clothes, filthy as can be, digging holes, busting up the place… It was more about the action and the activity of it than anything else. And yet for me, it was a sanctuary. It was an environment. It was just me, Gordon, and Alan Saret. That was the beginning of 112. It wasn't like 'Oh gee, we're opening a gallery…'"

-Excerpt is from an interview with Jeffrey Lew, reproduced from 112 Greene Street.
