Ed Ruscha: Standard
Presented by Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University
February 13 - June 9, 2013
Ed Ruscha's art depicts everyday objects – gas stations, street signs, billboards, commercial packaging – yet often triggers philosophical reflection about the relationship between words, things, and ideas. His influence can be seen in graphic design, cinema, architectural theory, and urban history. Ed Ruscha: Standard includes paintings, videos, and works on paper from throughout his career. The exhibition originated at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which holds more than 300 works by this iconic American artist, and will be supplemented by works from the Rose collection.
