RIP – Artist Nancy Kienholz Has Passed Away at 75

August 12th, 2019

Artist Nancy Kienholz, who worked alongside her husband Ed on a series of  challenging, occasionally controversial sculptural installations, has passed away at the age of 75.  The announcement came via L.A. Louver gallery, which represented the duo in Los Angeles. “Nancy will be deeply missed. Her collaborative work with Ed, and thereafter her solo studio activity, has been a powerful cornerstone of L.A. Louver for the past 38 years,” the gallery said in a statement. “We suffered a huge loss upon Ed’s death in 1994, which deepens with Nancy’s passing—a void that can only be filled with the enduring legacy the couple left behind. Their work, and their relentless charge against social injustice, will remain a guiding light that leads us through our darkest times.”
