Blenheim Art Foundation announced this week that artist Jenny Holzer has been selected to exhibit new works at the UK’s historic Blenheim Palace this fall. She is first woman artist, and only the fourth artist ever to be chosen to fill the 18th-century Palace with contemporary art. Past featured artists include Ai Weiwei, Lawrence Weiner, and Michelangelo Pistoletto.

Holzer will create new work for the palace, including text carved into stone, LED light pieces, projections, and installations using black mondo grass. “My first visit to Blenheim Palace left me with too many ideas, on the complex past and its relevance to this knife-edge present,” the artist told the Guardian.
