Published on the occasion of Jonathan Horowitz’s first Solo show in a UK institution, this catalogue combines newly commissioned artworks for Dundee Contemporary Arts and works from the past two decades of the artist’s practice. The new body of work Horowitz has created is his response to works by the artists Sol LeWitt, Richard Serra, Ellsworth Kelly and Joel Shapiro. It takes as its focus the function and use of art, particularly minimalist art, in relation to socio-political reality. Combining the imagery and ambivalence of pop art with the engaged criticality of conceptualism, Horowitz is highly regarded for tackling contentious political issues of the day, as well as the political silences of post-war art.
This publication reveals an artist with a sharp, radical mind who cuts through our safety nets with defiant and brilliant art.
