Edward Kienholz is best known for his 1960's large scale assemblages of found objects, urban detritus, and knick knacks arranged into environments or tableaux that comment on unpleasant social and cultural aspects of life. Kienholz's assemblages can be described as aged, dingy and opposite from the clean lined Minimalist sculpture that also emerged in the same era. Both styles (Minimalism and Kienholz's Assemblage) were centralized in Southern California and are the results of a turning away from Abstract Expressionism that dominated 1950's American art making.
