Barbara Kruger (b. 1945) is a world-renowned Los Angeles–based artist who tackles contemporary culture with criticality and wit. Taking cues from our image-saturated cultures, Kruger interrogates the hierarchies of power and control in works that often combine visual and written language. As an active consumer and vigilant viewer of popular culture, Kruger grapples with the accelerated ways pictures and words instantaneously flow through media. Co-organized with the Art Institute Chicago, LACMA, and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the exhibition spans four decades and features 33 works, including Kruger’s single-channel videos from the 1980s, digital productions of the last two decades, large-scale vinyl room wraps, multichannel video installations, and audio soundscapes throughout LACMA’s campus. Further, the exhibition includes new video works that re-imagine the artist’s most iconic vinyl pieces. Curated at LACMA by Michael Govan, CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director, and Rebecca Morse, Curator, Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, this exhibition is the largest and most comprehensive presentation of Kruger’s work in 20 years. BCAM Level 2; On view: March 20 – July 17, 2022;
