Channa Horwitz: Rules of the Game

Channa Horwitz’s second exhibition with Lisson Gallery, entitled ‘Rules of the Game’, highlights the LA-based artist’s fascination with capturing space, movement and time through structure, line and pattern – an investigation she pursued resolutely from the 1960s until her death in 2013.

Featuring a selection of drawings in ink, casein and coloured pencil alongside book works, studies and a number of ambitious, rarely seen multipart works on paper, the exhibition highlights Horwitz’s rigorous conceptual structures and self-determined rules. The show is the first in London since her critically acclaimed survey at Raven Row in 2016 and coincides with a major solo exhibition at MUSAC in León, Spain, which runs until 26 May.

Horwitz was an artist who worked largely outside of the art world canon, despite her lasting friendship with Sol LeWitt and her studies at CalArts in the early1970s alongside peers Allan Kaprow and John Baldessari. She chose to pursue her own, distinct language through logical systems and contended that the fewer choices she allowed herself, the more she could discover.
