    Barbara Kruger is an artist who works with pictures and words. She was born in Newark, New Jersey and lives and works in Los Angeles and New York. Kruger has taught at CalArts, and UC Berkeley and is currently a Professor at UCLA. Beginning with her earliest works, which combined text and imagery from books and magazines, she has turned a critical eye toward consumerism, desire, political will and the ways in which power is threaded through our lives and works to define who we are and aren’t. Her images, installations and video works have appeared both inside and outside the so-called art world. In 2005 she was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 51st Venice Biennale.
