For this WexCast, we're sharing a November talk by Elizabeth Weiser in the galleries covered floor to ceiling by the work of Jenny Holzer. The Ohio State Department of English professor explores the language Holzer shares in her series of Truisms and Inflammatory Essays, on view as part of HERE, as well as the reactions they spur, and how a museum setting provides important context for the words Holzer initially wheat pasted on the streets of New York City. Weiser also discusses the work in relation to her most recent book, Museum Rhetoric: Building Civic Identity in National Spaces.
