Jenny Holzer

Protect me from what I want. Like wanting to be at the current Venice Biennale to watch a giant yacht create a kerfuffle.

The poster below was purchased from one of the many souvenir stands in Venice at the 1990 Biennale. Jenny Holzer was representing USA  Рthe first lady ever.

The truism artist borrowing from the world of advertising and marketing.

If you wanted you could buy t-shirts, hats, pencils, wooden postcards and this poster.

We wanted the poster.
