Provenance : 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

Art Brokerage: Edward Ruscha American Artist: b. 1937. Ed Ruscha was born December 16, 1937 in Omaha, Nebraska. Ruscha had his first solo exhibition in 1963 at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. At the start of the seventies, Ruscha began showing his work with the Leo Castelli in New York. He has consistently combined the cityscape of Los Angeles with vernacular language to communicate a particular urban experience. Encompassing photography, drawing, painting, and artist books, Ruscha's work holds the mirror up to the banality of urban life and give order to the barrage of mass media-fed images and information that confront us daily. Ruscha's early career as a graphic artist continues to strongly influence his aesthetic and thematic approach. Ed Ruscha has been the subject of numerous museum retrospectives, which have traveled worldwide, beginning in 1983 with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Centre Georges Pompidou in 1989, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in 2000. In 2001, he was elected to The American Academy of Arts and Letters as a member of the Department of Art. The following year a major exhibition of Ruscha's entire body of work opened in Spain at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia. In 2004, The Whitney Museum of American Art organized two simultaneous exhibitions: "Cotton Puffs, Q-tips, Smoke and Mirrors: The Drawings of Ed Ruscha," which traveled to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and then to the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and "Ed Ruscha and Photography." Also in 2004, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney mounted a selection of the artist's photographs, paintings, books and drawings that traveled to the Museo Naziona le delle Arti del XXI Secolo, Rome and to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Ruscha was the United States representative at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005. His show Course of Empire then traveled to the Whitney Museum.
