Artists' Fellowship - 1985
I had a show last year which included new lenticular and color photo work. I aslo continued to write criticism and teach both of which I also consider part of my work.
More about the Artist:
Barbara Kruger makes instantly recognizable collages from layered photographs. Blending pop, letterism, conceptual art, feminism, and photography, she draws on a graphic design background to speak directly to the power struggles in advertising and mainstream culture. Her captions mimic advertising and say “seduced by the sex appeal of the inorganic,” “Your body is a battleground," “who do you think you are,” “your comfort is my silence,” and many other conceptual slogans.
Her work has been shown on billboards, buscards, posters, a public park, a train station platform in Strasbourg, France, and commissioned for other public exhibitions as well as in museums and galleries worldwide.
Kruger has been commissioned to design covers for numerous magazines, from Esquire and Newsweek to The New York Times Book Review. She has also created posters on subjects ranging from reproductive rights to a short film by Jonathan Demme and the backdrop for the band Rage Against the Machine’s 1997 tour.
Most recently, Kruger has made life-size white fiberglass statues. Her work is represented in many major museum collections, including The Museum of Modern Art; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; St. Louis Art Museum; The Whitney Museum; Milwaukee Art Museum; and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
