Kienholz: Five Car Stud was curated by Germano Celant with a selection of artworks by Edward Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz, including the Five Car Stud exhibition (1969-1972). This was first exhibited at documenta 5 in Kassel, curated by Harald Szeemann. It is a life-sized reproduction of a scene of racial violence and is considered Kienholz’s major work. It has been stored with a Japanese collector for the past 40 years.
This has been defined as the representation of the “burden of being an American” and it could not be more timely than today….
