Ed Ruscha at the Hayward.

I'm looking forward to seeing this exhibition at the Hayward. Will it be dead busy on Friday night?

The first major UK retrospective to focus exclusively on the paintings of one of the most influential and pioneering American artists of the past half-century. Spanning Ed Ruscha’s entire career, the exhibition features 78 paintings, many on public display for the first time, and reveals the depth and breadth of Ruscha’s achievement as a painter whose interests in printed matter, graphic design, cinema, photography and the cultural landscape of the American West make his elegant and provocative work both playful and subversive.


  1. I am also looking fwd to this - so much that I think multiple visits might be needed. In my experience, Friday night is the best time to see such exhibitions, outside of office hours. Enjoy!

  2. You're not wrong, P. Might leave it a couple of weeks until the rush dies down. Maybe we could diarise a Friday night outing.
