    About The Work

    A pioneer of public art, Jenny Holzer is most famous for her series of Truisms, short maxims that she writes or appropriates to comment on contemporary culture. Her first Truisms from the 1970s were printed in black ink on white posters and wheat-pasted around New York. In later projects, her aphorisms appear in public places in the form of LED signs, light projections on buildings, silk-screened paintings, bronze plaques, and incised stone benches. Sometimes serious and sometimes ironic or contradictory, the purpose of Truisms is to remind us to constantly question and critique politics, inequality, and the conflicts of the world around us.
