Cotton Puffs, Q-tips®, Smoke and Mirrors: The Drawings of Ed Ruscha This landmark exhibition will present more than two hundred of Ed Ruscha's original works on paper, ranging from depictions of vernacular objects, trademarks, and gas stations, to renderings of words and phrases in countless stylistic variations. His use of unusual media, including fruit and vegetable juices, gunpowder, blood, and tobacco juice, further attests to the ingenuity of this major American artist. Q-tips is a registered trademark of Chesebrough-Pond's Inc. Cotton Puffs, Q-tips®, Smoke and Mirrors: The Drawings of Ed Ruscha has been made possible by support from The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation.
Ed Ruscha and Photography Since the beginning of Ruscha’s career as an artist in 1961, photography has been both an inspiration and a source of discovery for the artist. This important exhibition of Ruscha’s photographs, curated by Sylvia Wolf, includes rare pictures that have been tucked away in boxes in the artist’s studio and have remained unpublished and unseen. This exhibition will provide over fifty vintage prints and photographic studies. Pressetext
