April 7 — May 27, 2007
7 weeks only

This exhibition brings together Ed Ruscha and Raymond Pettibon, two major contemporary artists who, as individuals, explore the associations of images and words. The project represents their recent collaborative work on two print series, The Holy Bible and THE END, printed under the auspices of master printer, Ed Hamilton, at Hamilton Press, in Venice, California. In addition to thirty-three collaborative lithographs, the exhibition will include drawings, prints, and a “zine” by Pettibon and prints, altered books, and paintings by Ruscha.

A catalogue with essays by David Hickey and Ed Hamilton accompanies the exhibition, and is available in The Museum Shop.

This exhibition was organized by the Pomona College Museum of Art, Claremont, California and has been made possible by the generous support of the Pomona College Museum of Art Advisory Committee. Funding for the Worcester presentation includes generous support from the Don and Mary Melville Contemporary Art Fund. Other support provided by Worcester Magazine.
