Paulina Pobocha on Jenny Holzer and Lady Pink

A pair of New York City artists envisioned the worst...while pointing the way to something better.
Nov 20, 2020

In our latest online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, a member of our staff shares personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, Paulina Pobocha, associate curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture, tells us she still gets goosebumps when she looks at Jenny Holzer and Lady Pink’s Trust visions that don't feature buckets of blood (1983–84), in which brashly colored images of political terror are countered by the will to seek out a better future.

Explore our collection work by work as we release a new video each Friday. Watch the videos and then come visit the works in person at MoMA!
