This Week at LACMA

June 23, 2024

ED RUSCHA / NOW THEN underscores the many remarkable contributions Ruscha has made to the art world and beyond, with works like Spread (1972), a suspended, double-sided, tobacco-stained composition, demonstrating his ceaseless experimentation with unconventional materials and formats.

"Ruscha’s retrospective has plenty on its mind and much to say,” writes the Los Angeles Times. “Now then, don’t miss it," This week, also make sure not to miss docent-led tours of the exhibition on Tuesday, June 25, Friday, June 28, and Sunday, June 30, free with museum admission.
