Jenny Holzer
End of the USA

$540

About

Jenny Holzer is one of the most important and original artists of the 20th century. Her body of work, with an emphasis on text, is consistently provocative and occasionally frightening, manipulating the language of both pop culture and government slogan to produce commentary on global issues notably power structures and warfare. Holzer's iconic "Inflammatory Essays", produced between 1979 and 1982, were first pasted on walls throughout heavily populated metro areas including New York and other cities. Composed of anonymous statements, printed on friendly or calm colored papers, the statements were influenced by writings of major political figures such as Emma Goldman, Mao Tse-Tung, and Vladimir Lenin. Holzer explained that “Like any manifesto, the voice in each essay urges and espouses a strong and particular ideology. By masking the author of the essays, it allows the viewer to assess ideologies divorced from the personalities that propel them. With this series, the reader is to consider the urgent necessity of social change, the possibility for manipulation of the public, and the conditions that attend revolution.” Over the course of Holzer's career, the artist has continued to revisit the content and affect of the "Inflammatory Essays" and as such they are like cornerstone of her practice. As such the "Inflammatory Essays" are an essential, and affordable, addition for a collection. They can be found in numerous museum collections including the Tate (London) "End of the USA" (Inflammatory Essay) Offset lithograph Printed at Millner Bros., NYC circa 1982 17”H 17”W Very good condition
