ABOUT DAVID HORVITZ AND HIS PROJECT
In 2010, David Horvitz commissioned artworks from twenty-seven different artists and placed these works in a four-flap folder - an archival folio used by librarian to contain loose documents. Originally making 30 editions of this work, Horvitz’s curatorial process involved: making an exhibition-ready “book,” assigning it an International Standard Book Number (ISBN), and gifting copies to various institutions around the world. Similar to the insect suggested obliquely in the project’s title, the editions have an invasive nature. Through its acceptance into a library archive, each edition of Drugstore Beetle (Sitodrepa Paniceum) becomes part of that institution.
The curators of Significant Ordinaries are borrowing an original version of Drugstore Beetle (Sitodrepa Paniceum) for the main portion of their exhibition at the University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach. Significant Ordinaries explores diverse acts of presentation as ways of making art. Showing artwork by David Horvitz, Louise Lawler, William Leavitt, Jeffrey Vallance, and Mark Wyse to suggest how different approaches to curatorial selection and display are situated in the broader field of creative artistic process.
As part of the Significant Ordinaries educational programming, Horvitz’s Drugstore Beetle (Sitodrepa Paniceum) II will be available for viewing in CSULB’s Special Collection Library for the duration of the exhibit – January 28, 2013 – April 14, 2013.
