Channa Horwitz

Born 1932 in Los Angeles, US
Died 2013 in Santa Monica, US

Channa Horwitz' work is composed of basic structures which only reveal their full complexity in execution. The point of departure is always a variation of the numbers 1 through 8, and in her later work, the attribution of a particular colour value to each number. Many of these compositions can be read as instructions for sequences of movements or interpreted musically. Acclaimed not only for her drawing, Horwitz also received praise for her performative works begun in the 1970s. Her work has been exhibited in solo shows internationally at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, the San Francisco Art Institute and the Armand Hammer Museum of Art, Los Angeles among many others. She was represented in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, the 55th Venice Biennale and the Taipei Biennale 2012.
