Matthew Mazzotta

Matthew Mazzotta works at the intersection of art, activism, and urbanism, focusing on how the power of the built environment shapes our relationships and experiences. His practice invites a critical perspective and a sense of openness into the places where we live. It opens a dialogue that dissects the systems that make up our “everyday” while exploring the potentials in public spaces. His community-specific public projects integrate new forms of civic participation and social engagement into the built environment and reveal how the spaces we travel through and spend our time living within have the potential to become distinct sites for intimate, radical, and meaningful exchanges.
