D.A.P./WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

Kienholz

A Retrospective

Artwork by Edward Kienholz.

This landmark catalogue is the first complete monograph on the work of Edward Kienholz, one of the century's most significant artists, and his wife and partner Nancy Reddin Kienholz. A co-founder (with Walter Hopps) of L.A.'s legendary Ferus Gallery, and a leader in the Californian assemblage scene, Kienholz emerged internationally as one of the most powerful figures to work against the omnipresence of Abstract Expressionism with his assemblages, which incorporated a variety of found and sculptural materials. Kienholz dramatized the complexity of postwar America in these assemblage-tableaux, addressing issues of war, abortion, racism, prostitution, government indifference and human cruelty. Published on the occasion of an important retrospective exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, this book reproduces in more than 300 illustrations a selection of works ranging from intimate collages to life-size tableaux made between 1954 and 1994. The accompanying text explores the evolution of Kienholz's career, examining both his solo work and work made in collaboration with his wife. An illustrated chronology is provided by Nancy Reddin Kienholz.
