    Barbara Kruger’s wrapped school bus can be seen driving around Manhattan and parked outside various Performa venues throughout the Biennial. Grounded in activism, feminism and community, Kruger’s signature text is reproduced on a large-scale vinyl format, covering the bus’s forty–foot-long shell.
