Catalogue Note

Jenny Holzer is a pioneering conceptual artist. For more than four decades, she has presented her social and political views in varied text exhibited in public places and international exhibitions, including 7 World Trade Center, Guggenheim Museums in New York and Bilbao, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. In 1990, she became the first woman to represent the United States at the Venice Biennale and to receive the prestigious Leone d’Oro.

Born in Gallipolis, Ohio in 1950, Holzer studied at Duke University, University of Chicago, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and Ohio University; she holds honorary degrees from Williams College, RISD, The New School, and Smith College. Her visual vocabulary has always been words, whether on t-shirts, benches, condoms or LED projections. With humor, kindness and courage, Holzer uses her art to challenge ignorance and violence.
