Ed Ruscha's publication of artist books beginning in the early 1960s had a profound effect on other contemporary artists. Bruce Nauman's Burning Small Fires (1969) was the first of many books directly influenced by and in conversation with Ruscha's publications; in this case Ruscha's Various Small Fires and Milk (1964), a book featuring documentary-like photographs of matches, a smoking pipe, and other forms of fire. The opening of Ed Ruscha Books & Co. will coincide with the release of MIT Press's Various Small Books: Referencing Small Books by Ed Ruscha (2013) and will feature over one hundred artist books by Ruscha and numerous others, showcasing Ruscha's lasting impact along with those he has inspired.

Venue Description: Open Mon.-Sat., 10am-6pm.
