Ed Ruscha is a name synonymous with American Pop Art. His career, spanning over six decades, takes center stage in a retrospective at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. In collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the exhibition boasts over 200 pieces. It’s a kaleidoscope that includes everything from Ruscha’s iconic text-driven landscapes to surprising experiments with materials like chocolate and gunpowder. Ruscha’s route to fame began with a move from Oklahoma to LA in 1956, and his artistic language has been deeply influenced by American culture ever since.
