Recently, “Go Vegan,” an exhibition created in 2002 by artist Jonathan Horowitz, was reconfigured and launched at a former slaughterhouse in Manhattan. The space is now owned by art dealer Gavin Brown’s enterprise, and previously housed Pat La Freida Meats. According to The New York Times, the building still smells of butchered meat. A lifelong vegetarian, Horowitz’s exhibit employs a variety of mixed media, including video of animals being slaughtered and an installation of tofu emerged in water and juxtaposed with a Normal Rockwell painting depicting a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. The exhibit is being attended by high-profile New Yorkers, and runs through June 19.
