Ed Ruscha: Fifty Years of Painting

This is the first retrospective to focus exclusively on the paintings of the Los Angeles based artist, one of the most influential and pioneering American artists of the past half century. Spanning his career, the exhibition reveals the depth and breadth of Ruscha’s achievement as a painter and highlights the conceptual underpinnings of his approach to painting. In addition to exploring the impact of print and graphic media on the artist’s aesthetic strategies, it also focuses on the incisive portrait of American culture that is presented through his imagery.
