‘Every day is Earth Day’
Hauser & Wirth has joined forces with Jenny Holzer on a very special fundraising initiative to mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on 22 April 2020. Holzer is creating a limited-edition print in an edition of 100, featuring one of her iconic Truisms – ‘ALL THINGS ARE DELICATELY INTERCONNECTED’.

The artist’s contribution for Earth Day 2020 continues a deep-rooted tradition linking printmaking and environmental activism: in 1970, Robert Rauschenberg created the first graphic image to support the first national awareness campaign for Earth Day in the United States. For Holzer, print and activism have been core pillars of an artistic practice spanning 40 years.
