Assemblage is an attempt to explore and address the development of assemblage from its beginnings in Dada, with an eye towards the future in a historical climate of developing interest in minimalism and conceptualism. Addressing the West Coast propensity to recycle emotionally-charged detritus, the works in this exhibition reveal an ongoing relevancy of the synthesized by-product, which continues to shape different artist’s personal languages.  Including works by: Edward Kienholtz, Bruce Conner, Llyn Foulkes, Arman, Jean Arp, Wallace Berman, Louis Bourgeois, Joseph Cornell, MAcrel Duchamp, Max Erst, Eva Hesse, Ed & Nancy Keinholz, Jannis Kounellis, Man Ray, Robert Rauschenberg, Kurt Schwitters, Dorothea Tanning, Tom Wesselmann, and others.  Works selected and compiled by D.K. Walla.
