expendable architecture and ed ruscha

One of 142 gelatin silver prints in Ed Ruscha’s "Now & Then," at Gagosian Gallery

artnet covers the ed ruscha exhibit currently at the gagosian - Then and Now:

is an extended meditation on [the subject of LA's "expendable" architecture]. Inside the lush Richard Meier-designed space is a long white vitrine containing Ruscha’s photographs of every building along the main stretch of Hollywood Boulevard as he photographed them in black and white in 1973 and as he re-photographed them in color in 2004. The work references his ground-breaking 1966 artist’s book, Every Building on the Sunset Strip and Steidl Verlag has published these 142 Hollywood Boulevard photographs as Then and Now, the artist’s first book project in many years.
also covered is julius shulman's retrospective at the getty and tim street-porter's photographs of los angeles.
