"Barbara Kruger: Retrospective"
2000-07-13 until 2000-10-22
Whitney Museum of Art
New York, NY, USA

The Whitney Museum surveys the bold work of Barbara Kruger in the artistís first major museum retrospective. Krugerís instantly identifiable images, among the most compelling of the past two decades, explore the dynamics of power, identity, sexuality, and representation, and have helped shape a generation of artists.

This exhibition features over seventy works by Barbara Kruger. The once graphic designer takes her graphic eye to monumental proportions with billboard sized works which combine photography and text. These in-your-face pieces express extreme emotions of modern life. Sometimes boxed as a feminist, Kruger maintains her work is pure social commentary. Although this is a retrospective most of the works themes provoke a reaction that feels current to the viewer.
