The Hort's Favorite Artworks from NADA New York's 2018 Preview
Michael and Susan Hort.

In an Artspace interview with collectors and philanthropists Susan and Michael Hort, Andrew Goldstein writes, "In an art world where trends come and go, artists rise and fall, and buzzy galleries emerge only to quietly vanish, many New York collectors who want to buy fresh, young art with staying power follow a simple rule: find out what Michaeland Susan Hort are collecting." Buying for love during the early stages of the art market in the '90s, the Horts championed emerging artists who have since gone on to become blue chip success stories, artists like Adrian Ghenie, Chris Ofili, and John Currin

Here, the influential couple chose their favorite artworks from the official NADA New York preview (which you can view on Artspace here), and explained why they chose each piece. 

 

CHRISTIAN CAMACHO
habla casa dinos tu nombre (apellido), 2016
Galeria Mascota, Mexico City
Booth 4.03

 

Beautiful use of found materials. Hope it is archival.

 

ALEX BRADLEY COHEN
Untitled, 2018
Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, New York
Booth 1.00


Colorful painting, combination of figurative and abstraction. Especially like how he created the yellow arm.
 
 
 
NIKITA GALE
BIG BAD PICKUP, 2017
56 Henry, New York
Booth 4.17

 
 

Work is compelling yet it is also free. We assume the piece is used for performance also.

 

 

DANIEL HEIDKAMP
Living Sunset, 2018
LOYAL, Stockholm
Booth 2.04


This out of worldly painting we found unusual and interesting. We have been following him for many years.
 
 
 
KYUNG ME
Copy Kitty, 2017
Hotel Art Pavilion, Brooklyn
Booth 4.28

 
This graphite drawing is complex, strange, and fun by a talented artist. We wonder what the narrative is.
 
 
 
 
 

This drawing reminds us of a show we saw at the Studio Museum that we loved. It's mysterious and beautiful.
 
 
JACOLBY SATTERWHITE
Passage, 2013
Recess, New York
 

 

 

A Rema Hort Mann Foundation grant winner. He did a great performance at our home. We especially love his performances and videos. This edition is very interesting and colorful.
 
 
 
Booth 2.06
 
 
 
This image rings true in this era of political corruption. We have been aware of her work since her Iranian woman series.
 
 
 
ALICE WONG
Untitled, 2017
Booth 1.22

The Tortuga looks like a fun boat. We especially like her intense colors and composition.
