Examines the relationship between the work of renowned surrealist Roberto Matta (1912-2002) and his son, conceptual artist, Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-1978).

Pablo Picasso : the legacy of a genius( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring the breadth of the artist's achievements through the insights and speculations of fellow artists, close relatives, historians, and critics, the film centers on thirteen key works which vividly represent the major turning points in Picasso's career. Robert Rosenblum, an art historian and a noted authority on Picasso, introduces us to these key works. Dominique Bozo, founder of the Musée Picasso, visits the places in Paris and the south of France where the artist lived and worked, and discusses the relationship between his milieu and art. Critic Clement Greenberg and Picasso's biographer Roland Penrose present their views on many important issues in Picasso's career. Several generations of painters and sculptors have had to contend with the scope of Picasso's vision. Among others, Henry Moore, Matta, Anthony Caro, David Hockney, George Segal, and Roy Lichtenstein comment on the ways in which Picasso's oeuvre has affected their own artistic sensibilities. Pablo Picasso: the legacy of a genius is an assessment of the 20th century's best known artist and his vast achievements

Intimatta( Visual )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

INTIMATTA is a cinematographic object, typical from MATTA's sphere, belonging to his world and nothing else, open to whatever you want to project in it. It is not a documentary but more an artist film about Roberto Matta, based on video recordings made by his son Ramuntcho Matta, director of this project, and about interviews to contemporaries who knew Matta very well. When he was 80, Matta felt the need to transmit the keys of his career and thus created an exchanging space between him and his youngest son, Ramuntcho, who was young enough to be his grandson. An even closer relationship was built, since Matta had lost two of his children: Batan, who committed suicide in 1975 and his twin brother, Gordon Matta-Clark, who died of cancer in 1978. This way, Ramuntcho started to record from the eighties each encounter with his father, focused on how to transmit the tools for you to become your own father. Transmission was always the centre of Matta's philosophy. This is what allowed him to develop very privileged relationships with, among others, Garcia Lorca, Le Corbusier, Victor Brauner, Salvador Dali, Andre Breton, Marcel Duchamp ... in order to be able to transmit later on these knowledge, a real principle of life and responsibility to Matta: instead of hiding the secrets of creation, he opens his studio to other artists, creating a real 'inspiring' breeze to Jackson Pollock, Willhem de Kooning, Fahlstrom, Jorn. Thanks to dozens of tapes with Roberto Matta painting, talking, walking and even sleeping; recorded between 1986 and 2000, through his working notebooks, his letters, his postcards and the gifts he sent to family and friends, INTIMATTA shows us a way of thinking. With this unpublished material as a starting point, INITIMATTA immerses us into the artist's creative and intimate world, stating some universal questions about transmission, fatherhood, and how to share intimacy

Oeuvres complètes by Lautréamont( Book )

1 edition published in 1938 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les oeuvres complètes de Lautréamont après l'édition historique de 1938, comprend les préfaces de leurs éditions successives et une abondante bibliographie. C'est une remarquable édition de Lautréamont que vient de nous donner José Corti. Les œuvres complètes de Lautréamont y sont précédées de huit préfaces, écrites à diverses époques par divers écrivains, pour des éditions précédentes ... Cela fait au total un commentaire long et varié -sinon contradictoire -à travers lequel on pourrait suivre le fil de la connaissance progressive de Lautréamont depuis sa première publication jusqu'à nos jours. On voit d'abord comment cette œuvre est lente à se manifester. On a comparé son apparition à une explosion volcanique, mais les volcans littéraires ne font pas éclater sans résistance la croûte des habitudes intellectuelles. Vient ensuite un commentaire précis du journaliste sur chacune des préfaces

Matta : du surréalisme à l'histoire by Matta( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ouvrage publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée au musée Cantini, Marseille, du 15 février au 20 mai 2013. Matta, né au Chili en 1911, part très jeune pour Paris où il rencontre Tanguy, Duchamp et Breton. Il devient alors un artiste incontournable du mouvement surréaliste. De 1939 à 1949 il est aux Etats-Unis où il passe des Morphopsychologies à une oeuvre où le monde extérieur prend toute sa place après la révélation des exactions de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Son témoignage et ses engagements dans les luttes du XXe siècle seront à l'origine d'une oeuvre exceptionnelle, prolifique jusqu'a, à la démesure, à l'iconographie particulièrement abondante
