Since 1965, Ed Ruscha has extensively photographed various streets in Los Angeles. Now comprising over 750,000 images, the resulting project offers a compelling record of the city’s metamorphosis and serves as a resource for scholars studying a range of subjects, from Ruscha’s design training to demographic, architectural, and cultural changes across decades.
In conjunction with ED RUSCHA / NOW THEN, join Getty Research Institute senior research specialist Zanna Gilbert, art historian Jennifer Quick, and cultural historians Eric Avila and Josh Kun for a live online conversation about how Ruscha’s unique archive captures his creative process and celebrates the layered history of Los Angeles.
