Jenny Holzer
From May 13th 1983 to May 28th 1983
Inflamatory Essays

Jenny Holzer's posters similarly can be located in any city and within or outside the gallery. The posters are not specific to any context; they are specific to a genre. The posters occupy the site of street posters and graffiti, although, they are on occasion artificially placed and decoratively coloured and assembled. As with advertisements, the meeting with an audience is accidental, but the posters do not take the form of address and seduction of advertisement. The language seems direct and the posters in situ have all the bonhomie of art povera and process art. (p. 32)
