Artist Bio

For 40+ years, Holzer has presented her astringent ideas, arguments, and sorrows in public places and international exhibitions, including 7 World Trade Center, the Venice Biennale, the Guggenheim Museums in New York and Bilbao, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Her medium – whether paired with a T-shirt, a plaque, or an LED sign – is thought/text, and a public dimension is integral to the delivery its delivery. Setting out with postering New York City in the 1970s and continuing to recent projections onto landscape and architecture, Holzer’s practice rivals ignorance and violence with intellect, humor, humanity, and courage. She received the Leone d’Oro at the Venice Biennale in 1990, the World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award in 1996, and the Barnard Medal of Distinction in 2011. She holds honorary degrees from Williams College, the Rhode Island School of Design, The New School, and Smith College.

Collaboration info

Jenny Holzer’s contribution to the NYC AIDS Memorial resonates with Walt Whitman’s ‘Song of Myself’. The landmark is now a stark reminder of the AIDS epidemic that once ravaged New York back in the 80s, claiming the lives of over 100,000 victims.

The fight to eradicate the virus is still long, and through this collaboration we honor the lives lost, the lives still fighting, and the lives dedicated to raising awareness.
