mac Birmingham is delighted to present ARTIST ROOMS: Jenny Holzer, an exhibition showcasing works by this incredibly important political artist.


Jenny Holzer is known internationally as a pioneer of conceptual art, applying text in her work through a range of processes including painting, projection and her iconic LED works.

The exhibition showcases a range of pieces which depict recurring themes of violence, power, war, sex and money. The centrepiece of the exhibition is the towering piece BLUE PURPLE TILT; consisting of seven double sided vertical LED displays, this work acts almost as a retrospective of Holzer's work as it contains a selection of messages from several of her early text pieces.

Works from this exhibition are drawn from the ARTIST ROOMS collection of modern and contemporary art, which is shared with museums and galleries across the UK.

ARTIST ROOMS is jointly owned by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate and was established through The d'Offay Donation in 2008 with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Governments.
