The highlight of my weekend was the Jenny Holzer exhibit at the Whitney, PROJECT PROJECT. My recommendation is to take advantage of Friday’s extended hours (open till 9PM) and the “pay as you wish” admission fee. For the best experience arrive a little on the late side, when the crowds are gone and the guards outnumber the visitors.

About the Exhibition:
Jenny Holzer’s pioneering approach to language as a carrier of content and her use of nontraditional media and public settings as vehicles for that content make her one of the most interesting and significant artists working today. Alternating between fact and fiction, the public and the private, the universal and the particular, Holzer’s work offers an incisive social and psychological portrait of our times. PROTECT PROTECT centers on Holzer’s work since the 1990s and is the artist’s most comprehensive exhibition in the United States in more than fifteen years.

    Hello. I arrived from a topic of Whitney Museum.
    I see the work of Jenny Holzer with Toyota museum in Japan and am a fan since then. I got excited because it went to Whitney Museum of NYC last month.

    Wasn’t PROJECTPROJECT a nice exhibit? I also liked her “redaction” paintings of declassified information. Was the exhibit in Japan an LED installation or projections?

    The exhibition in NY was very interesting. A Japanese one depends on same architect(Taniguchi) as MOMA in NY and is an LED work established to a wellhole hole with stairs. It’s very suitable for space.
