Jenny Holzer Marquees

Jenny Holzer Marquees

Jenny HOLZER – selections from the “Truism” and “Survival” series.

Jenny Holzer took over the empty marquees that once advertised events at 42nd street theaters. Instead of coming attraction, however, the public found “truisms” – statements by Holzer that had the authorities ring of proverbs. But instead of confirming accepted practices, these comments often seemed to come out of left field. Holzer reordered the world along the lines according to her uncanny “uncommon sense” (http://www.creativetime.org).
