Jenny Holzer Bio

Jenny Holzer (b. 1950) is an American conceptual and installation artist whose work deploys text in public spaces in an array of media, including electronic and LED signs, carved stone, billboards, and printed materials. Closely aligned with the feminist art movement, Holzer’s art provokes public debate and illuminates social and political injustice. Celebrated for her use of language and interventions in the public sphere, Holzer’s practice encompasses both individual and collective experiences of power, violence, and vulnerability.
