Jenny Holzer at the Whitney

Through May 31, the Whitney offers a 15 year retrospective of iconic artist Jenny Holzer’s stark and riveting work. “Abuse of power comes as no surprise” appears in streaming led displays that are both beautiful and terrifying, these works deal with torture and threats to our freedom using the tools of the corporate/industrial entertainment complex, a great lesson for those who make no distinction between art and advertising.
