Please Change Beliefs (select Jenny Holzer in index)
Holzer works in words. She has wrapped them up the rotunda of the Guggenheim Museum, stretched them across the zipper of the Newsday Building, created outdoor sculpture to stimulate debate, and plastered them to the marquees of derelict movie houses on Forty-second Street in New York. Holzer explores the use of language challenging the viewers reaction/interaction. Her methods of communication include electronic signboards, sculpture, printed messages, the web and more.
