Jenny Holzer: For You (MMCA)

National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Korea, 2019
As part of a series of commissioned projects, in 2019 the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, collaborated with American artist Jenny Holzer, who employs language in various public spaces to address collective concerns and private anxieties. Her work draws attention to societal issues and political injustices by emblazoning text on all kinds of objects and surfaces. These interventions bring many pressing contemporary concerns to the surface, often amplifying the voices of historically marginalised groups. ‘For You’ presents her work in the form of posters, LED signs, and carved stone, all installed in various indoor and outdoor spaces at MMCA.
