Free to all
Bringing together key works from across Holzer’s four-decade career, this exhibition includes rarely seen works from the artist’s archives and installations exhibited in the UK for the first time.
American artist Jenny Holzer (b1950) is renowned for thought-provoking, text-based installations that incorporate diverse media and a pioneering use of electronic technologies.
The artist draws on content from a wide range of sources, often incorporating incongruous viewpoints to examine the nature of communication and human interaction.
This display features works from Holzer’s major texts, including Truisms, Living, Survival and Laments, in addition to writing by others.
Installations include three large-scale paintings created in collaboration with the New York graffiti artist Lady Pink, one of which will be on display in the UK for the first time, and the largest selection of the artist’s drawings Diagrams (1976) ever exhibited together.
