Publication Date Nov 2008
Description An up-to-date, profound monograph on Jenny Holzer, featuring works from a period of almost twenty years—a must for all fans of the American artist. 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 multiple voices, opinions, and attitudes that shape everyday life. With a turn in practice towards greater visual and environmental presence, Holzer (*1950 inGallipolis, Ohio) 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.
