Summer Show

Exhibition Dates: July 20 - August 16, 2007

Showcasing a diverse range of artists this exhibition spans works from the tail end of the sixties through to those produced just this year, and encompasses painting, drawing, photography, print, collage, digital art and sculpture. Contrasts in scale range from an enlarged Harry Kipper digitally-altered portrait to the sculptural pieces of Michael Counts and his interests in the notion of the micro epic. The artist's involvement with the book is a recurrent theme and is touched on by commentators ranging from Brigid Berlin to Matthew Barney, by way of Richard Prince and Mats Gustafson. It's...

Printed Matters. New Work by Philip-Lorca diCorcia

Exhibition Dates: August 4 - September 10, 2007

Glenn Horowitz Bookseller is pleased to announce their latest exhibition of new works by Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Printed Matters, curated by Thea Westreich and Ethan Wagner.

Taken from the contents of diCorcia’s 2003 book project, A Storybook Life, the works in this show were not made by any overt action on the part of the photographer, but came about accidentally as part of the printing process for the book. These images are the result of a proofing procedure typical in book publishing where a finite number of paper sheets are run through the press to ascertain sharpness of image, color...

Will Cotton Drawings

Exhibition Dates: June 30 - July 31, 2007

Glenn Horowitz Bookseller is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works on paper by Will Cotton. These images, all produced this year, add to an expanding body of work detailing Cotton’s primary aesthetic obsession - the representation of pleasure. In the past Cotton produced lavish, mouth-watering images of candy fantasy lands- forests and caverns composed of chocolate, lollipops and ice cream – but has more recently begun to populate these utopian confectionary landscapes with gorgeous, eroticized female figures, as realistically represented as the impossible environments they seem so...

c/o The Velvet Underground
New York, NY

Exhibition Dates: April 12 - May 12, 2007

John McWhinnie / Glenn Horowitz Bookseller is pleased to announce an exhibition commemorating the 40th anniversary of the release of The Velvet Underground and Nico. The album, perhaps the most famous debut by any band in the history of rock and roll, continues to resonate today with collectors, indie-rockers, aficionados, critics and the culture at large. Its enormous presence, however, has yet to be fully examined in an exhibition. This show attempts to correct that oversight, offering the most comprehensive collection of Velvet Underground memorabilia and artifacts to be seen in New York...

Black Boards, White Chicks

Exhibition Dates: February 21 - March 24, 2007

Black Boards, White Chicks consists of two series of works poised in an uneasy standoff. The black boards are from Dayton's surfboard series, rectangular wood panels decorated with vertical stripes of color, meticulously crafted, lacquered and raised to a high gloss sheen. The surfboards draw equally upon the high-art tradition of post-painterly abstraction once championed by the cultural eminence Clement Greenburg, as they do upon the artisanal ethos of a much lower end of the culture, that of the surf bum painstakingly shaping a board in his workshop. This particular group, all...
