Jenny Holzer Exhibit at the WHITNEY

Video from Art21org
On view until May 31 is JENNY HOLZER's work called PROTECT PROTECT at the WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART. Last Sunday, I went to the Whitney to view this exhibition. Jenny Holzer's pioneering approach to language as a carrier of content and her use of nontraditional media and public settings as vehicles for that content make her one of the most interesting and significant artists working today. Alternating between fact and fiction, the public and the private, the universal and the particular, Holzer's work offers an incisive social and psychological portrait of our times. PROTECT PROTECT centers on Holzer's work since the 1990s and is the artist's most comprehensive exhibition in the United States in more than fifteen years (from the official website). The Whitney is located on Madison Avenue at 75th Street.
