2:00pm to 6:00pm


Totem & Taboo will be accompanied by a series of salon-style interdisciplinary conversations and performances during monthly Saturday Salons, a platform for cross-disciplinary conversations and collaborations including lectures, performances, concerts, and panels curated by Ella Marder.


Is the image more real than reality, or the epitome of fiction? Is the image politically conservative or subversive? What is the difference between what is imaginary in an image and what is creative imagination? From Rousseau to Freud and Jung, from Guy Debord to Castoriadis and Jacques Lacan, this conversation will engage with the question of the image as it relates to art and other forms of culture.

Artist ( Description ): 

Daniel Horowitz (born in New York, 1978) works in painting, drawing, collage, and installation. His art is characterized by a unique combination of realism and surrealist abstraction. Daniel employ an associative logic, whereby disparate subjects are thrown together into impossible landscapes that are nonetheless psychologically cohesive. Through dissonant figure pairings and Freudian fluency in our collective symbolic lexicon, Horowitz conjures up what cannot be visualized into something visible. His paintings suggest a narrative but this promise dissolves into ambiguity. Originally inspired by Surrealism and the Polish Poster School, he developed natural interest in the so-called New Leipzig School, known for mixing surrealism and realism. Horowitz’s work has been the subject of international solo and group exhibitions - from New York, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Warsaw, Berlin, Leipzig, Paris to Split, Barcelona, and Montreal. He graduated from the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA (2001).
