Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt and David Horvitz: For Ruth, the Sky in Los Angeles

(Der Kultursenator Klaus Lederer überreicht Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt den Hannah-Höch-Preis am 1.11.2022 in Berlin)

Wende Museum, Los Angeles

12 November 2022 – 12 March 2023

As an artist participating in the Mail Art movement, Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt‘s work was distributed on a global scope. Particularly prevalent in the 1970s and 1980s in places where artists experienced state censorship, Mail Art was able to link individual practitioners who were otherwise separated by different political and cultural contexts. This legacy is taken up and extended by Los Angeles-based artist David Horvitz (b. 1982), whose experimental and ongoing exchange with Wolf-Rehfeldt provided the impetus for a two-person presentation. Originally shown at the Albertinum of the State Art Collections in Dresden, it is now traveling to Los Angeles. A catalogue of this poetic exchange was published by Spector Books. To read more, click here

This exhibition is organized by the Albertinum (Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden) and the Wende Museum, and curated by Kathleen Reinhardt and Joes Segal.
