This panel consider the central components of Jenny Holzer’s new work, YOU BE MY ALLY—including the built environment, text sources, as well as so-called “new media" and mass media—to consider the University’s commission in relationship to Holzer’s past work, to our present context, and to practices in architecture, liberal arts education, and new media art and archaeology.
Panelists include award-winning architect Billie Tsien (Williams and Tsien Architects); media archaeology scholar Ina Blom (Professor, University of Oslo and Wigeland Visiting Professor in the Department of Art History, University of Chicago); head of Media Aesthetics Core and literary scholar Benjamin Morgan (Associate Professor, Department of English Language and Literature); and moderated by art historian and Holzer team member Christine Mehring (Mary L.
