Jenny Holzer Screening + Gallery Talk

Preview the Jenny Holzer exhibition in B6: The Robert W. Wilson Building before participating in a public screening and follow-up discussion of PBS’s Art21 episodes featuring the artist.

For educators: MASS MoCA partners with PBS’s Art21 documentary series for an Art and Social Change high school teacher workshop, centered around the work of Jenny Holzer. The workshop particularly focuses on Holzer’s Redaction Paintings on view in Building 6, which feature declassified documents about the Iraq War and enhanced interrogation techniques at Guantanamo Bay. The workshop encourages teachers to consider how they can use the arts to develop learning opportunities for students to consider such questions as the nature of truth, dissemination of information, authority, and narrative.
