Ed Ruscha “VERY”
May 17, 2018 - August 19, 2018
Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Gl Strandvej 13, 3050 Humlebæk, Denmark


A vital figure in the development of pop and postmodernism, Ruscha interpreted American motifs, landscapes, and iconography in a striking idiom that fused image and language. This exhibition spotlights his key works and studies from the 1960s onward—particularly his word-pictures such as “Double Standard” (1970) and “Spam Study” (1961–62)—which exemplify his technical and graphical prowess.
