PETER HORVATH

 

Peter Horvath is a video, sound, photo-based and new media artist. Embracing digital technologies at the birth of the Web, he created narratives through selective editing of film footage and his early collages. His new work uses a similar approach with a focus on deconstructing and recontextualizing imagery through collage, drawing from mid-20th Century advertising images in found publications and the Internet. He uses juxtaposition and scale combined with saturated colour to produce surreal, hypnogogic and sometimes humorous re-workings.

Peter Horvath has received numerous grants from The Canada Council for the Arts and Ontario Arts Council for his New Media work. His work is included in permanent collections internationally, including a new addition in 2016 to the Whitney Museum of American Art. He is the recipient of commissions from Rhizome.org at The New Museum, NYC (2005) and Turbulence.org New Radio and Performing Arts, Boston (2004). He has exhibited in museums and galleries globally, including the Whitney Museum Of American Art‘s Artport (NYC), Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico City), the Musée national des beaux-arts du  Québec  (Québec City, Canada) and FILE Electronic Language International Festival (Sao Paulo, Brazil). 

A recent exhibition of work by Alexander Calder has inspired Horvath to add new visual elements to his most recent collages, which we will soon upload to FFOTOIMAGE.

The Whitney Museum of American Art recently added work by Peter Horvath to its Permanent Collection.
