David Horvitz: Studio Rent Editions

Jun 25 - Aug 15 // 2016

Having a studio space has long been integral to David Horvitz’s practice. To solve the ongoing issue of finding funding for a studio space, Horvitz devised Studio Rent Editions. Each month he produces an edition of 10 of something - a watercolor, photograph, text, ephemera, or mail art, for example. Results range from serious to humorous, from “bad” to “amazing”. Horvitz stamps, dates, numbers, and signs each edition, and then sells them for 1/10th of his studio rent. Most editions are sold out.
