    Additional Info : Every year since the Telluride Film Festival\'s inception, a different artist has been selected to create a poster for the festival with the requirement that they include the word \"show\" in the image. Ruscha\'s composition borrows its text from a large illuminated sign. The actual neon sign can be found outside the Sheridan Opera House in Telluride, where the festival\'s awards are given out. Other artists who have been commissioned to create posters for past festivals include David Salle, Doug and Mike Starn, Jim Dine, and Francesco Clemente. This poster comes from the 26th annual festival from 1999. The edition is sold out and hard to find. Even more rare are the few signed impressions, of which this is one.

    Edward Ruscha

    Ed Ruscha is an American artist whose oeuvre melds Pop Art iconography with the documentarian rigor of Conceptual Art. With a practice that spans drawing, painting, photography, film, printmaking, and publishing, Ruscha’s background as a graphic designer is evident in his subtle use of typography. He is perhaps best known for his artist’s books, such as Twentysix Gasoline Stations (1963), as well as his word paintings which skew the meaning of each word through color, background, and font. “I like the idea of a word becoming a picture, almost leaving its body, then coming back and becoming a word again,” he said of his inspiration. Born on December 16, 1937 in Omaha, NE, he grew up in Oklahoma City before moving to Los Angeles to study art at the Chouinard Institute (now the California Institute of the Arts). Deeply influenced by the culture and atmosphere of Southern California, Los Angeles as a place has proved to be a consistent wellspring for Ruscha’s imagination. In 2016, he was the subject of a sprawling exhibition at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, titled “Ed Ruscha and the Great American West,” it included 99 works which dealt with America’s captivation with the western landscape and manifest destiny. The artist’s works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Tate Gallery in London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. He continues to live and work in Los Angeles, CA. Listings wanted. Check out our new sister site at Bluechipartbrokerage.com
