Ed Ruscha

Ed Ruscha

June 29, 2000 – September 17, 2000

Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden
7th and Independence Ave., SW
Washington, DC

Location: Level 2

Wit, graphic skill, and a focus on language, vernacular culture, and mass media characterize the work of Los Angeles-based American artist Edward Ruscha (b. 1937), represented here in his first American museum retrospective since 1982. A selection of approximately 75 works from the early 1960s to the present reveal Ruscha's development of a distinct vision with parallels to Pop Art, Photo-Realism, Conceptual Art, and today's media-based imagery and renewed focus on painting.
