Jenny Holzer

12 Jun – 29 Jul 2017, Hauser & Wirth Zürich

Opening reception: Sunday 11 June, 6 – 8 pm

Hauser & Wirth Zürich is delighted to stage a major presentation of new and unseen work by Jenny Holzer, the New York artist celebrated for her evocative use of language and interventions in the public sphere. Since the 1980s, Holzer has developed electronic sculpture as a means to articulate her bold statements, sobering poetry and political word-play. The exhibition in Zurich unveils a series of the artist’s acclaimed Redaction paintings along with related drawings, and is centred around a new kinetic LED beam that responds to movement; a collection of her austere stone benches complete the presentation. The show follows Holzer’s solo exhibition ‘Softer Targets’ at Hauser & Wirth Somerset in 2015.
