[Fake] Fake Estates: Reconsidering Gordon Matta-Clark's Fake Estates

An exhibition by Martin Hogue with opening reception on January 24th
January 14, 2007 - 7:00pm to February 8, 2007 - 7:00pm

Martin Hogue, Assistant Professor at Syracuse University, spent several months systematically canvassing Queens, N.Y., for residual properties similar to the 14 parcels purchased there and documented by Matta-Clark in 1975.   Hogue's exhibition includes drawings, collages and photographs that challenge the conception of the value and purpose of land, revealing the potential of "real" sites, even so-called small and unusable ones like an 1/8-inch x 110-foot property.
