One funny thing about the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Jenny Holzer exhibition, titled "Protect Protect," Mar. 12-May 31, 2009, is that it’s sponsored by Bloomberg, the current king of the zipper news feed. The show features several large-scale installations made using Holzer’s signature LED light panels, or whatever they’re called. Holzer and Bloomberg, made for each other. It reminds me of the time back in the 1980s when Metro Pictures sold my painting of a bottle of Johnson & Johnson baby oil to Johnson & Johnson’s corporate art collection.
