Jenny Holzer Gets Solo Show at Blenheim Palace

24 hours ago

From the end of September until the end of December 2017 Blenheim Palace will host a solo show by American artist Jenny Holzer.

“The exhibition will use augmented reality to explore the potential of the virtual space,” according to the press release. It will feature new and less recent works by the artist who’s well known for her large scale installations made of LED signs. The show follows two other solo shows held in the palace (Michelangelo Pistoletto in 2016 and Lawrence Weiner the year before) and it’s the first one by a woman.

Holzer was the first female artist to represent USA at the Venice Biennale, back in 1990.
