David Horvitz (born 1982 in Los Angeles; lives and works in Los Angeles) focuses on artistic and research projects on environmental and social issues in his work. He employs various media such as artists’ books, photography and performance and mail art. He extends the boundaries of mail art in the virtual sphere using Internet communication (e-mail or chat). This is then juxtaposed with natural systems, natural phenomena and living organisms.
Horvitz’s work has been presented in numerous solo exhibitions, e.g., at the Centre Pompidou-Metz (2022), CURA HQ in Rome (2021), SCAI The Bathhouse in Tokyo (2019), the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York (2014), Blum & Poe in Los Angeles (2014), Kunsthall Stavanger (2014), as well as group exhibitions, e.g., at the K11 Art Foundation in Hong Kong (2021), the E. A. Shared Space in Tbilisi (2021), Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milan (2017), the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2017) and MoMA in New York (2015).
