Ed Ruscha :  An Archive of Projects [Other Stuff]


Catalogue raisonné of "Other Stuff" by Ed Ruscha including artists' projects and ephemera; contour gauge profiles; painted book covers, and "stuff" that eludes traditional classifications." Edited by Robert Dean with texts by Dean, Al Ruppersberg, David Platzker, and Michael Friend.

"…All of these objects frame much of what is contained in the body of this volume: ‘stuff' made by Ruscha that falls in a netherworld of the artist's production, located somewhere between what he considers side projects, personal gestures, Commerical or commissioned projects, and good capers. These are escapades and other things that do not fit neatly into formal, traditional categories such as ‘paintings, 'sculptures,' ‘drawings,' ‘prints,' or ‘artists' books.' As such, much of this ‘stuff' isn't intended by Ruscha to be recognized as formal artworks…"—from "Old Pine and a Few Signs," Platzker's contribution to the publication.
