Jenny Holzer

8 Sep – 29 Oct 2022 New York, 22nd Street

About

Renowned American artist Jenny Holzer has used language as her primary medium since the 1970s, combining poetic, political, and personal texts to reflect our experiences of power, violence, joy, oppression, idealism, sexism, leadership, nonsense, despair, reform, fun, and corruption.

Spanning the entire first floor of the gallery’s 22nd Street location, this exhibition spotlights Holzer’s unparalleled ability to harness the power of words.
