Creative Time Gala to Honor Jenny Holzer
The New York–based organization Creative Time is set to honor Jenny Holzer at its 2019 annual gala, which takes place on October 24. Former honorees have included artists such as Kara Walker, Vik Muniz, Pedro Reyes, and Julian Schnabel. Holzer has collaborated with Creative Time before, notably for a two-part, text-based presentation in 2004 that included the pieces For the City and For New York City: Planes and Projections. The pieces respectively saw Holzer’s “Truisms” emblazoned on banners that flew behind a squadron of planes, as well as a selected series of quotes from renowned poets projected over different areas of New York City.
