Barbara Kruger Barbara Kruger

American conceptual artist Barbara Kruger creates bold artworks which employ media effects and strategies to challenge the ways mass media influences society’s notions of cultural, sociopolitical and gender issues. Her appropriation of advertising techniques facilitates direct communication with the viewer to compel reflection and action. Major solo exhibitions of Kruger’s work have been organised by the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London (1983), Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (1999), and Palazzo delle Papesse Centro Arte Contemporanea in Siena (2002). In 2005 she was honoured at the 51st Venice Biennale with the "Golden Lion" for Lifetime Achievement.
