Ed and Nancy Kienholz: Berlin/Hope
March 13 through April 26, 2014
45 N Venice Blvd, Venice, CA 90291
After their marriage in 1972, Ed and Nancy Kienholz used grant money to move away from L.A. and set up studios in Berlin and Hope, Idaho. The found object work they made together between 1975 and 1979, which features in this exhibition, has rarely been seen in the U.S. and often included cultural paraphernalia that fascinated them, like Nazi issued radios that used to broadcast messages from the Third Reich.
