FOOD was a conceptual restaurant opened by Gordon Matta-Clark and Carol Goodden in 1971. At a time when SOHO was just starting to grow as the center of the avant-garde art world, FOOD was a landmark meeting ground for events, food performances and ongoing art projects by downtown artists.

Gordon Matta-Clark
1972 | 43 min | 16 mm film on video

This film documents the legendary SoHo restaurant and artists' cooperative Food, which opened in 1971. Owned and operated by Caroline Goodden, Food was designed and built largely by Matta-Clark, who also organized art events and performances there. As a social space, meeting ground and ongoing art project for the emergent downtown artists' community, Food was a landmark that still resonates in the history and mythology of SoHo in the 1970s.
