Haim Steinbach (born 1944) is an American artist. He has been an influential exponent of art based on already existing objects. Since the late 1970's Steinbach's art has focused on the selection and arrangement of everyday objects. To enhance their interplay and resonance, he displays his selected objects on structures and framing devices. Steinbach’s objects range from the natural to the ordinary, the artistic to the ethnographic, giving form to art works that underscore their identities and inherent meanings. Exploring the psychological, aesthetic, cultural and ritualistic aspects of objects as well as their inherent content and significance, Steinbach has radically reinstated the status of the object in art.
