Jenny Holzer's pioneering approach to language as a carrier of content and her use of nontraditional media and public settings as vehicles for that content make her one of the most interesting and significant artists working today. Alternating between fact and fiction, the public and the private, the universal and the particular, Holzer's work offers an incisive social and psychological portrait of our times.
This fifteen-year survey exhibition was organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and Fondation Beyeler, Basel, and is curated by Elizabeth Smith with the participation of Dr. Philippe Büttner.
