PRODUCT: Jenny Holzer
SIZE: 11" high x 12.4" wide
For over thirty years, Jenny Holzer's work has paired the use of text and the centrality of installation to examine emotional and societal realities. Her choice of forms and media brings a sensate experience to the contradictory voices, opinions, and attitudes that shape everyday life. With a turn in practice towards greater visual and environmental presence, Holzer joins political bravura with formal beauty, sensitivity, and power. With essays by Joan Simon and Elizabeth A. T. Smith, and an interview with the artist by Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, this publication centers on Jenny Holzer's work from 1990 to the present.
