The Santa Barbara Museum of Art has organized a presentation of five works by Ed and Nancy Kienholz to celebrate the recent gift of the duo's Bout Round Eleven (1982) from a private collector in Topanga. Also on view is The Nativity (1961), a crèche-like assemblage that helped spark a culture war over LACMA's 1966 Kienholz show.
"Scenes from a Marriage: Ed & Nancy Kienholz" runs through May 21, 2023.
