Exhibition: Jenny Holzer at Blenheim Palace
Blenheim Art Foundation is delighted to announce SOFTER: Jenny Holzer at Blenheim Palace, a solo exhibition by American artist Jenny Holzer.
The fourth artist to to showcase contemporary art at Blenheim Palace, Holzer will be creating new work directly addressing our military and political history in relation to themes which have figured prominently in her practice since the 1980s: power, conflict and activism.
Alongside many new works, the exhibition will use augmented reality to explore the potential of the virtual space and will also feature the artist’s well-known work with LED signs. Holzer is developing large-scale light projections that will transform the Formal Gardens after dark in a series of night time public events. Visitors can also explore more meditative areas which will feature examples of Holzer’s best-known work.
“My first visit to Blenheim Palace left me with too many ideas, on the complex past and its relevance to this knife-edge present.” – Jenny Holzer
