David Horvitz has a lovely solo exhibition currently on view at Blum & Poe until August 23rd. The exhibition features two installations. The first, a row of clear glass vessels placed on the floor of the gallery in a line dividing the space in two, contain clear liquid. The second installation is a series of color photographs from Horvitz’s ongoing Public Access project. In 2011, Horvitz travelled up the coast of California from Mexico to Oregon, photographing himself at public beaches. He then placed these photographs on the Wikipedia entries for each beach, often replacing the picture that was already there. The act prompted a negative response from Wiki editors, who were at first confused by the images, and then angered. In his work, Horvitz examines human response to nature, and systems of communication.
