Jenny Holzer may have raised laconic yet principled word bursts to an art form, but she is not behind the Twitter account attributed to her. “Maybe it’s somebody’s conceptual art project,” Holzer told Jori Finkel of the Los Angeles Times. “I would be embarrassed to do it myself—I like being invisible. But when I look at the website, I think: Go, Not-Me.” Holzer’s Twitter impostor has been posting all-caps, Holzer-flavored truisms since May 2007, attracting more than 16,000 followers. On Wednesday in L.A., the artist herself was presented with the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Award to Distinguished Women in the Arts. A fitting honor, as Holzer designed the bronze award plaque back in 1994. It reads “It is in your self-interest to find a way to be very tender,” a truism that yesterday appeared on Twitter.
