Edward Ruscha.


The gas stations, the strip, the plain language, the cool wit, the games with light: Surely Ed Ruscha is the consummate West Coast artist. Yet, to former Hirshhorn assistant director Neal Benezra (now at the Art Institute of Chicago), that's a limiting label. "I've always felt this work is of primary importance internationally," he says, and together with MOMA Oxford director Kerry Brougher and associate curator Phyllis Rosenzweig, he's gathering seventy-five works from the '6os to the present (including all sixteen of Ruscha's books) to prove the point.
