Donna De Salvo walks us through her favorite pieces in the new exhibit at the Whitney Museum of Art, a retrospective of Jenny Holzer’s work titled “Protect Protect.”

Jenny Holzer’s pioneering approach to language as a carrier of content and her use of nontraditional media and public settings as vehicles for that content make her one of the most interesting and significant artists working today. Alternating between fact and fiction, the public and the private, the universal and the particular, Holzer’s work offers an incisive social and psychological portrait of our times. PROTECT PROTECT centers on Holzer’s work since the 1990s and is the artist’s most comprehensive exhibition in the United States in more than fifteen years.

    Awesome! I’ve been interested in her work since I was in high school. I’m looking forward to seeing this exhibit.
