The artist bore holes into New York’s derelict buildings in the ’70s as much as a political critique on socioeconomic stratification as a representation of his deep engagement with the city’s urban landscape. Here, more than 100 of his works—films, sculptural buildings, and rarely seen materials—chronicle his practice, and the role of the Bronx in his art and activism.
