How does the meaning and impact of an artwork change when it is made public?
Jenny Holzer posted her Truisms in the New York subway from 1977 to 1979. In this activity you will learn how artists' statements are written and published for the world to see. Taking inspiration from Holzer, you will write your own manifesto, make it public, observe the response, and reflect on the process.
