Pillow Talk with David Horvitz
With a performance by Ben Vida
Presented in collaboration with Art on Air
Tuesday, April 9, 2013
The Clocktower Gallery
346 Broadway, New York, NY
Shandaken Projects is pleased to invite you to a presentation by 2012 resident David Horvitz. Horvitz will welcome guests into his Art on Air studio at the Clocktower in Lower Manhattan, for a presentation that will be part artist talk and part autobiographical narrative. Visitors will hear about his six-week-long residency in Shandaken, see some of the artwork that he made there, and get a behind-the-scenes look at his newest project. As a special bonus, Art on Air will present a performance by Ben Vida that begins at 7, timed perfectly so that guests can see both. Vida (with percussionist Eli Keszler) will perform electronic compositions for digital and analog synthesis that were developed during Vida's Art on Air residency.
Shandaken Projects' ongoing series of "pillow talks" are intimate discussions with former residents and special guests. Eschewing the traditional slide lecture format, these presentations focus on residents' realms of inquiry rather than illustrated histories of their object-making.
