Edward Kienholz's powerful and epic Ozymandius Parade invades The Pace Gallery in New York. Kienholz, the master of installation and full scale environment artworks, used this 1985 satirical assemblage as a meditation on the corruption of politics. Created in collaboration with his wife Nancy Reddin Kienholz, the work's dramatic parade of characters and objects at moments reveals Kienholz's influence on LA artists like Mike Kelley and Paul McCarthy. On view through December 22nd 2012 at The Pace Gallery, 510 West 25th Street, New York. Photo and text Juliana Balestin
