Exhibition on Ed Ruscha at the Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnell

Until 8 March 2016, the Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli, in Torino, Italy, continues its research project on collecting and introduces the exhibition “ED RUSCHA MIXMASTER”. The exhibition, curated by Paolo Colombo, is a collection made up of objects selected from Turin public collections and placed alongside the artist’s work.

His works have been collected by main museums...
