FOOD is a short film directed by aritst/photographer Robert Frank about Gordon Matta-Clark and Carol Goodden's conceptual restaurant. Founded in 1972 in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City, FOOD brought together many factors of the local community, artists and otherwise, becoming a space for dialogue and conversation as well as a living piece in it of itself.
Matta-Clark would commission artists such as Robert Rauschenberg and John Cage to create meals, many of which were unedible.
You can read a fantastic interview regarding FOOD with sculptor Richard Nonas who was heavily involved with the restaurant.
Gordon Matta-Clark died in New York City in August of 1978
