About The Work

This significant footstool features one of Holzer's iconic truisms from her "Survival" series, written between 1982-1985. The phrase, Let Your Hand Wander on Flesh to Make Possibility Multiply, represents one the artist's more romantic expressions of the human condition.

There are many reasons to covet Holzer's work. Starting with her groundbreaking 1982 "Messages to the Public" installation in Times Square, to her role as the first woman representative of the United States at the 1990 Venice Biennale, for which she won the Golden Lion Award, she has grown into one of the most important and widely exhibited artists today. 

With a history of public installations in Sydney, Australia, Osaka, Japan, and Venice, Italy, the NYC AIDS Memorial represents Holzer's first permanent installation in New York.
