His work has been featured in more than 200 solo exhibitions and more than 1,000 group exhibitions in the United States and Europe. Ruscha’s work encompasses painting, drawing, photography, and artist’s books. He has been the subject of numerous international museum retrospectives. This discussion is moderated by Bob Monk, director of Gagosian Gallery’s Uptown Gallery, New York.
