Barbara Kruger “Past / Present / Future” @ The Temporary Stedlijik
World renowned American artist Barbara Kruger designed a large format type based show especially for the building’s largest gallery, known as the hall of honor. Her installation wraps the floor and walls with printed texts that speak directly and loudly to the spectator in a chorus of voices.
As is the case with all of her work to date, her provocative, emotionally charged statements about how people regard and treat each other disrupt the decorum of a traditional museum space. She is extremely skilled at bringing the world into her work and her work into the world. Her sharp wit and classic design sense combines to create a wonderful exhibit.
