Barbara Kruger (United States, b. 1945) is one of the most significant and visible artists of our time. As an active consumer and vigilant viewer of popular culture, Kruger grapples with the accelerated ways pictures and words instantaneously flow through media and how they are simultaneously played and replayed.
Part of a limited edition, artist-designed series of fine art bandanas for the campaign "Artists Band Together" which supported key organizations working to increase voter turnout in the 2020 U.S. elections.
Artists Band Together is curated by Amanda Fairey, Jill Goldman, Nora Halpern, Asti Hustvedt, and Victoria Kennedy. Working in close collaboration, the project's curators turned to artists and the compelling power of art to carry the bandana's activist spirit into the future as a sign of banding together—not only for the sake of public health in the midst of a global pandemic, but also for racial, social, environmental, educational and economic justice, for women's, immigrants', disability and LGBTQIA rights.
