David Horvitz Would Like to Invite You to Breakfast

By Harriet Staff

Hungry?

David Horvitz is the first artist commission on post, MOMA’s new website that hosts notes about modern and contemporary art around the globe. He’s curating a 24-hour breakfast on the site, beginning at the start of the news day on July 18th.

Artist Breakfast is a 24-hour broadcasting event that follows the morning sun west as it makes its way around the globe. Starting from the beginning of the new day on July 18, 2013, just west of the International Date Line, images of breakfasts eaten by artists will be posted live to post’s website. This will happen until it is the morning of July 18, 2013, just east of the International Date Line, when the last breakfast of the day has been eaten. I have asked the artists to provide short written descriptions of their breakfasts, which will be posted alongside the images they provide. The Artist Breakfasttells us, in a sense, that somewhere right now, someone is eating breakfast.

The Artist Breakfast is sometime after opening your eyes in a bed.

The Artist Breakfast is two eggs, a sausage, and a cup of coffee.

The Artist Breakfast is two eggs, a sausage, or a cup of coffee.

The Artist Breakfast might just be a cup of tea.

The Artist Breakfast might just be a slice of cantaloupe.

Yum! Visit post on July 18th to see what breakfast looks like for visual artists, musicians, social practice artists- and poets too!
