This documentary program looks at a landmark collaborative project by the artist Gordon Matta-Clark that address ideas of social space evident in The Art of Participation. Food (1972) documents the legendary SoHo artists' cooperative that served organic food and offered a space for discussions and performances, playing an important role in the artistic community in New York at the time.
