Barbara Kruger

Then: Conceptual art superstar, known for her stark black-and-white appropriated photographs set off by sharp, one and two word phrases. "When female artists started getting a place at the table in the '80s, Kruger and Cindy Sherman were the best known." (Helen Molesworth, curator of "This Will Have Been") Now: "'Got Milk?' and 'Think Different' and ads like that -- whenever I see them I think that those are advertisements made by people who very much know '80s art, in particularly Barbara Kruger." (Molesworth)
