"Jenny Holzer is one of my favorite artists, and she continues to use language to attack, provoke, and otherwise call out wrongs in the world, including in the Trump era. What I find most compelling about her work is its simplicity and its audacity. Holzer has famously said: "I used language because I wanted to offer content that people – not necessarily art people – could understand." Her work doesn't usually rely on a specific medium; the words could be on an electronic billboard, a t-shirt, or a postcard like this one. However this piece is so excellent because the red text and imperfect printing highlight the message."
