Luckily, Steinbach—once a hero of the late-eighties movement known as Neo-Geo—never went away. Here he’s showing ten of his signature large-scale, wedge-shaped wall shelves, which are filled with oddball objects displayed in ordered, often color-coded configurations: rubber dog chews, electronic "Hulk" hands, plastic pumpkin lamps, and electronic Halloween rat hats. It sounds wacky and ridiculous, but the results are often stately, and they make an elegant commentary on the things we see but rarely study.
