I watched a lot of this Hammer Museum talk, between John Baldessari and Ed Ruscha about Richard Artschwager, looking for a quote to pull from it but couldn’t really find anything pithy. Ah well. Sometimes there exist ideas that cannot be expressed in pithy quotes. You should watch it though.
The talk was tied to the Whitney Museum’s “Richard Artschwager!” retrospective, which just opened at the Hammer. You’ll find the entire video below.
