“Ed Ruscha / Now Then” at the Museum of Modern Art
Artists assembled by Art in America describe the influence of Ed Ruscha in our fall issue with tremendous awe, envy, and respect. They describe the Pop art icon’s work as “so straightforward, and so special,” deem him “a cool dad,” and remark, with an air of resignation, “he’s Ed Ruscha, and I’m not.” This monumental retrospective features more than 250 objects, including works engaged with painting, drawing, prints, photography, artist’s books, film, and installation. After MoMA, the show goes to Ruscha’s spiritual homeland when it travels to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Sept. 10–Jan. 13.
