Edward Kienholz: Roxys
David Zwirner is pleased to present Edward Kienholz's (1927-1994) renowned installation Roxys, 1960-61. First exhibited at Los Angeles's Ferus Gallery in 1962, this significant large-scale assemblage represents the first of the artist's environmental installations, or "tableaux" as he called them, and has been credited as being one of the earliest examples of what is now ubiquitously referred to as "installation art."
This exhibition follows the recently acclaimed presentation of a related work by the artist (in collaboration with Nancy Reddin Kienholz), The Hoerengracht (1983–88), which took place at the National Gallery, London, in November 2009 - February 2010.
