Jenny Holzer: The Power of Words, From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

“Jenny Holzer: The Power of Words” art exhibition from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, part of the Desert X Parallel Projects. The exhibition is running February 11 through April 4, 2019 at the Marks Art Center. The installation features artwork from international artist, Jenny Holzer.

For more than 40 years, Jenny has pursued a distinctive art practice in which she uses words and sayings in different media to explore social issues and urge positive social actions. Her style of delivery can be wall plaques, stone benches with carved inscriptions, prints and posters, LED signs, or printed T-shirts.

The 54 works in the Marks Art Center presentation represent three of these categories: lithographic prints, signs, and a carved bench. In them, Holzer delivers her stereotypical laments, astringent observations, social commentary, and slyly humorous aphorisms on subjects ranging from war to racism to private and corporate greed. @jschnitzerff #marksartcenter #marksartcentercod #collegeofthedesert #jennyholzer #desertxparallelproject #desertx
