JOE GOODE & ED RUSCHA in 'OK/LA'
Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma, USA
10 Sep 2020 - 7 Mar 2021
Joe Goode and Ed Ruscha take part in the group exhibition OK/LA at the University of Oklahoma. The exhibition features the work of six former Oklahomans who left the state for Los Angeles in the late 1950s.The exhibition centres around this group of artists united by a lifelong friendship that started as some of them shared a house while they were students at the Chouinard Art Institute. For a brief time they identified themselves as the "Students Five".
With their unconventional approaches to a variety of media, Goode and Ruscha are seminal figures in the development of the Californian art scene. In 2019 Galerie Thomas Zander presented Yesterday’s Treasures, their first two-artist exhibition in Europe.
