Screening Series: Visiting Splitting is a film screening and discussion with Kelly Baum, Liza Béar, Jessamyn Fiore, GH Hovagimyan, Mark Wigley and Marcelo López-Dinardi. The event will include a screening of Gordon Matta-Clark's renowned Splitting as well as the film Visit to Humphrey Street, which has never been presented publicly and has no declared author.
In 1974, artist Gordon Matta-Clark explicitly asked the gallerist Holly Solomon for a house. He was in the search of a place for his next building cut. The Solomons offered him a house that was later known under the name Splitting, and later become one of Matta-Clark's canonical works. The film Visit to Humphrey Street House (34:59) ––which has never been presented publicly and has no declared author–– records the famous bus trip that Solomon organized to take a group of artists to visit the house located at the 322 of Humphrey Street in Englewood, New Jersey.
