Jenny Holzer: Inflammatory Essays 1979-82
July 11, 2009 - October 11, 2009
American artist Jenny Holzer’s text-based conceptual works rank amongst the most direct and compelling art of the last 30 years. The Inflammatory Essays are starkly designed italicized texts which were originally posted on Manhattan’s streets. Each consists of 20 lines chosen from folk and religious literature and political manifestos. As depersonalized as they appear, lacking signature or attribution, The Inflammatory Essays become shouted challenges to the public.
