Jenny Holzer (b. 1950) is an American feminist Neo-conceptual artist, activist and writer. She is mostly known for her large-scale public displays including billboard ads, projections on buildings and other architectural structures as well as illuminated electronic displays.
The main focus of her work is the presentation of words and ideas in a variety of public spaces.
LED signs became Holzer’s most visible medium of expression and have been exhibited in major galleries throughout the world.
Holzer’s art also incorporates a wide array of media including bronze plaques, painted signs, stone benches and footstools, stickers, T-shirts, condoms, paintings, photographs, sound, video, light projection and the Internet.
