Ed Ruscha, born in 1937 in Omaha, is one of the most American among American artists. Since the early 1960s, when he graduated from the Chouinard Art Institute, Ruscha has been renowned for his multifaceted artistic production, spanning through photography, painting, printmaking, journals and artist's books. "Twentysix Gasoline Stations" (1963), a series that need no introduction, has started his serious international recognition, followed by first solo displays at Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles (1963-5) and next series, "Every Building on the Sunset Strip (1966) or "Pacific Coast Highway" (1974). Consequently, his work has been included in big recurring exhibitions, such as the Documenta in Kassel (1972, 1982, 1992) and the Venice Biennale (1970, 1976, 1997, 2005), and a flurry of shows that contextualised emerging tendencies in art, both pop and conceptual. Among them were "557,087" (1969) curated by Lucy Lippard for the Seattle Museum of Art, "Conception" (1969) at the City Museum of Leverkunsen, "Information" (1970) at the MoMA in New York, and the Sonsbeek Festival (1971). Today, his work is divided between international collections of the Metropolitan Museum, Whitney Museum and Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute in Chicago, MoCA in Los Angeles, Israel Museum in Tel Aviv, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and Tate Gallery in London, among many others.
