Artist Barbara Kruger, the 2014/15 Getty Artists Program invitee, is internationally renowned for her large-scale and immersive image, text, and video installations that address provocative social, cultural, and political issues.
For her project Whose Values?, Kruger joined forces with LAUSD Title I High Schools, engaging with 400 students as an artist-in-residence at Grover Cleveland and Chatsworth Charter High Schools.
Working closely with students, teachers, and Getty staff, Kruger engaged in an extensive series of classroom discussions and activities supporting critical thinking as well as collaborative art and writing projects to investigate core curricular themes of social justice, identity, race, gender, and advocacy.
The installation at the Getty Center culminates this project and highlights the students’ collaborative and creative visualization of Kruger’s guiding and thought-provoking questions:
