Pop art and Minimalism collide in Haim Steinbach's influential sculptures, which typically display an assortment of mass-produced objects on sleek looking shelves. Although these works have their origins in commercial merchandising, the goods—cereal boxes, plastic action figures, and lava lamps, for example—are transformed by the artist's odd and often humorous juxtapositions.
Steinbach emerged in the East Village art scene of the late 1980s, where alongside Jeff Koons and Peter Halley he was associated with the Neo-Geo movement. He went on to show at the Sonnabend gallery, where he quietly continued to evolve his signature sculptural readymades. In recent years he has been credited as an inspiration for such younger artists as Josephine Meckseper, Rachel Harrison, and Darren Bader.
Shown widely in North America and Europe, Steinbach's work has been the focus of solo exhibitions at the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art in Turin, the Haus der Kunst in Munich, and the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein in Berlin, among other venues.
