“Sunsets and Pussy”
Ed Ruscha, Lucien Smith, Betty Tompkins, and Piotr Uklański
Marianne Boesky Gallery, 509 W24th St., NYC
This exhibition brings together two classic themes of summer wonder – so saccharine and ubiquitous we forget their awesome power. Spanning three generations, artists Ed Ruscha, Lucien Smith, Betty Tompkins, and Piotr Uklański each engage in the delight of exposing the clichéd beauty and banality inherent in these timeless images.

Ed Ruscha, 1982.
Ed Ruscha, Do as Told or Suffer, 2001, Photogravure and screen print text.
