A note about paying attention and about David Horvitz
David Horvitz is a good friend. We’ve not met face to face but we’ve been exchanging emails and snail mails for more than a year now. If anyone asks me I will tell them that Horvitz is one of the smartest artists working today. His practice is light-hearted but still deeply intelligent. When one buys a work of art from him often all one gets to take home is……. nothing. Nothing that is but the experience of an exchange, possibly some digital evidence, a lot of emails, a ton of charm and a way to consider something outside one’s self. I’m being real quick here and of course there is more to his practice – for instance I have physical evidence that Horvitz is a truly remarkable photographer and an organizer/generator of occurrences that might feel like happenings or might turn out to be ambitious publications or exhibitions.
