PARIS.- From October 19th through December 19th, Natalie Seroussi presents an exceptional collection of photographs from the 1970s by the American artist Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978).

GORDON MATTA-CLARK

The awesome, colorful complexity of the photographs exhibited at the Natalie Seroussi Gallery, pursues and radicalizes spatial and aesthetic experimentation.

SET DESIGN BY DIDIER FAUSTINO
Natalie Seroussi has invited the artist and architect Didier Faustino to set the Gordon Matta-Clark exhibition at her gallery.

The gallery opened in 1983 and
