Barbara Kruger is one of the world's most provocative, distinctive and original artists.

In 2005, she was awarded the "Leone d'Oro" for lifetime achievement by the Venice Biennale. 

In 2010, Kruger completed one of her largest public commissions when she covered the Frank Gehry-designed facade of the Art Gallery of Ontario with her signature slogans.

Most recently, Kruger took over a New York City skate park as part of the Performa 17 performance biennial.

Her work can be found in every major museum's collection around the world. Her text-based works are iconic, unforgettable, and timeless. 

"Don't Make Me Angry" is unmistakably Kruger - a loaded slogan layered over an ambiguous found image. This work immediately brings to mind the threats of physical abuse and domestic violence, but beneath lies a deeper threat - Kruger's own response to provocation - her work.

 

1945 , United States

Conceptual artist Barbara Kruger rose to prominence in the 1980s for prints that juxtaposed black-and-white found photographs with bold, invented texts. In her most famous works, she prints wry and earnest slogans—“I shop therefore I am” and “Your body is a battleground,” for example—in thick, white Futura lettering against red text boxes that offset cryptic images from magazines and other mass-media sources. In 1982, Kruger represented the United States at the Venice Biennale, and in 2005, she was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement. She has also shown at Documenta and the Whitney Biennial. Kruger has enjoyed solo exhibitions at some of the world’s most prestigious museums and created site-specific installations for the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. A keen sense of social engagement pervades all Kruger’s work, which has also appeared on billboards, bus cards, posters, and train station platforms, as well as in parks and other public spaces. Her work has sold for six figures on the secondary market.
