Yesterday Kelly Crow of the Wall Street Journal featured Barbara Kruger’s new installation for the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. In addition to some cool time-lapse video of the piece, titled Belief + Doubt, Crow spotlights Hirshhorn director explaining why it was important for the Hirshhorn to commission the piece from Kruger. It’s really good stuff.
Kruger was the subject of an Ann Goldstein-curated 1999 retrospective at MOCA, an exhibition that traveled to the Whitney Museum of American Art. Her installation at — and actually on — the Italian Pavilion at the 2005 Venice Biennale helped her win the Biennale’s lifetime achievement award.
