Truisms: A Tribute to Jenny Holzer as curated by Joanie Martinez is opening this weekend, and we just received this wonderful preview of the show. Check out the beautiful work by all the artists, but especially this amazing flag work by Eddie Colla which reads:
You drink beer
and watch the NFL because it mirrors your approach to conflict.
You over-consume and under achieve.
You think you are this nation.
You think you are the heir to this nation.
You have traded our legacy for mitigated fear and complacency.
You distrust intellectuals and aspire to stagnation.
You rent spaces to store things you never needed.
You elect simple men to guide you through a complex world.
You cry to mandate a language you haven’t mastered.
You’re afraid of everything.
You watch TV
You let men with lapel mics tell you why you’re angry and who you’re angry with.
You fly by, drop bombs and expect to leave freedom and democracy in your wake.
You feed your children crap food, crap information and crap entertainment.
You think you represent all we stand for,
when in fact, your arrogance and ignorance
will be our ultimate failure.
You’re lazy and distracted.
You blame as if blaming is a resolution.
You veil your fascism and xenophobia under the righteous indignation of patriotism.
You feel entitled.
You carry signs and wave flags and pump your fists.
You chant USA like baboons fighting for a female.
You cling to that remaining DNA.
You pull history from it’s context and twist it into some malformed quasi platform.
You preach patriotism and freedom and spend your money on goods made under
You vote with your dollars.
You abandon your values and ideals in exchange low low prices.
You preach christianity in a manner that ignores it’s very tenets.
You stand as an impedance to progress,
as if you could hold back a world that is moving past you.
You scream and roar like a dinosaur amidst plummeting temperatures.
and if anyone owes anyone an apology
you owe me one.

Truisms, A Tribute to Jenny Holzer
October 16, 2010 7pm to Midnight
Show Curated by Joanie Martinez
Jenny Holzer is an American conceptual artist that focuses on the obstacles commonly approached in life from power and war to death and violence. Starting in the late ‘70s Holzer compiled a list of “truisms” which she circulated around public spaces.
TRUISMS is a show inspired by artists I have worked with previously, artists whom I have come to respect, and how I see Holzer‘s precedence relevant to their vision. The artists have taken the words of Holzer and reinterpreted them presenting their own approach to the obstacles she has chosen to expose.
