“A Building With A View”: Experiments in Anarchitecture

August 08 – September 30, 2016

In 1974, roughly two years before the founding of the CAC, the artist Gordon Matta-Clark, together with a group of artists including many native to Southeastern Louisiana, coined the term Anarchitecture. A word used to title an exhibition, to describe a form of thinking, to bind a community of friends and artists, and to acknowledge space as a social and formal condition, Anarchitecture pointed to an interdisciplinary spirit of the times that helped usher in contemporary arts centers across the country and, significantly, here in New Orleans. As we begin our commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of the founding of the CAC, this exhibition also serves as a formal meditation on the concept of Anarchitecture, an elision of the words anarchy and architecture. This exhibition presents the work of regional artists who examine the relationships between spatial and social conditions. The organization of the Contemporary Arts Center at 900 Camp Street, in the former Katz & Besthoff (K&B) warehouses, serves as a demonstration of creative reuse and the power of space to articulate an image of the future. As we embark on a redevelopment of our own physical galleries, we imagine the next forty years of the CAC through the reinvention of historic forms and structures. This exhibition is curated by Andrea Andersson, Ph.D., The Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts, and organized by the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans.
