Minimalist Works from the Holocaust Museum

Jonathan Horowitz

Jonathan Horowitz always dares to provoke. Here, his key works from the last twenty years are combined with newly-commissioned artworks; displaying an artist with a sharp, radical mind who cuts through our safety nets with defiant and brilliant art.

Minimalist Works from the Holocaust Museum takes as its focus the function and use of art, particularly minimalist art, in relation to socio-political reality. The exhibition includes a new series of works in which Horowitz reimagines four minimalist artworks that were commisioned for the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.

Horowitz is based in New York, and as represented at DCA, he works across mediums. Combining the imagery and ambivalence of pop art with the engaged criticality of conceptualism, his work is highly regarded for tackling contentious political issues of the day, as well as the political silences of postwar art. DCA is delighted to be the first public institution to give Horowitz a major solo exhibition in the UK.
