Whit czar Adam Weinberg remarked, as he surveyed the benighted detritus of his necessary Gordon Matta-Clark show, that "New York has much changed in the last 30 years." The wall texts, denoting that much of the Matta-Clark work is on loan from David Zwirner, a gallery which reportedly earns $1 million a month, confirmed this, as did Weinberg’s description of exhibition sponsor Deutsche Bank as being "brave" for underwriting the show. These days, Matta-Clark is an investment and his own bravery, like his short span on earth, is long gone. Now, apparently, only the banks are brave.
