artist biography

Jenny Holzer (b. 1950) is an American neo-conceptual artist, based in Hoosick Falls, NY. The main focus of her work is the delivery of words and ideas in public spaces. Holzer belongs to the feminist branch of a generation of artists that emerged around the 1980s, looking for new ways to make narrative or commentary an implicit part of visual objects. Her large-scale installations have included advertising billboards, projections on buildings and other architectural structures and illuminated electronic displays.
