Ed and Nancy Kienholz: Berlin | Hope at L.A. Louver

March 8, 2014 by Megan Koester in Upcoming Events with 0 Comments

L.A. Louver is pleased to announce Berlin | Hope, an exhibition of assemblage sculptures created by Edward Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz between 1975-1979. An opening reception for the exhibition, which runs through April 26th, will take place from 6PM to 8PM on Thursday, March 13th. Most of these works have not been exhibited for several decades, and some will be on view for the first time in the U.S.

Ed and Nancy Kienholz

During their initial years of marriage and artistic partnership, which began in 1972, Ed and Nancy Kienholz established studios in Berlin, Germany and Hope, Idaho. Featuring early works produced in both places, Berlin | Hope investigates the nature of their studio activity as influenced by these two very different environments, between which the couple divided their time for over 20 years.

“I really began to understand any society by going through its junk stores and flea markets. It is a form of education and historical orientation for me. I can see the results of ideas in what is thrown away by a culture.” – Ed Kienholz
