Ed Ruscha: Standard
September 22, 2012–January 21, 2013
BCAM, Level 3
Ed Ruscha: Standard presents a selection of work by the quintessential Los Angeles-based artist that spans six decades. The exhibition features nearly one hundred pieces by Ruscha drawn largely from LACMA's permanent holdings, which include more than three hundred works by the artist.
Ruscha’s art depicts everyday iconography–gas stations, street signs, billboards, commercial packaging–yet often triggers philosophical reflection about the relationship between words, objects, and ideas.
