Los Angeles-based artist Ed Ruscha is one of the most consistently inventive American artists of the last fifty years.

Since the early 1960s he has channelled his fascination with words and the act of communication into books, print-making, photography, drawing and painting. The exhibition will include a wide variety of works covering over 40 years of his remarkable career.

The Hatton Gallery is hosting a series of free talks about the exhibition - click here to find out more. 
 
The works on display are taken from ARTIST ROOMS, an inspirational collection of modern and contemporary art acquired for the nation by Tate and The National Galleries of Scotland through the generosity of Anthony d'Offay with additional support from funders, including the Art Fund. The ARTIST ROOMS tour programme, now in its fifth year, is showing at 17 museums and galleries across the UK in 2013. The tour is made possible thanks to the new support of Arts Council England and the continued support of the Art Fund.
