Untitled (Questions), 1990/2021, Barbara Kruger
September 17 – November 25
One of the most significant and visible artists of our time, Barbara Kruger is renowned as a curious consumer and an incisive critic of popular culture. Practicing since the late 1970s, Kruger uses direct address as a rhetorical strategy to expose and undermine the power dynamics of identity, desire and consumerism. Her instantly recognizable works utilize bold text and provocative messages; they feature rigorous interrogations of social relations and invite us to reconsider how we relate to one another.
This new work debuts alongside the Art Institute of Chicago’s presentation of Thinking of
You. I Mean Me. I Mean You., an in-depth look at four decades of Kruger’s practice.
