Photography Class Views Rare Artists’ Books by Ruscha and Others

A photography class from Art Practice taught by Matthew Smith visited the Art History/Classics Library last week to view some of our rare artists’ books. The students viewed several artists’ books by Ed Ruscha, including TwentySix Gasoline Stations, Thirtyfour Parking Lots in Los Angeles, and Some Los Angeles Apartments, all from the collections of the Environmental Design Library and the Art History/Classics Library.

Ruscha’s TwentySix Gasoline Stations is often considered to be a seminal work in the history of artists’ books, and has influenced many artists over the years. The students also viewed several works influenced by or appropriated from Ruscha:

Twentysix Abandoned Gasoline Stations by Jeffrey Brouws

Twentysix Road Kills by Daniel D. Teoli, Jr.

Twentysix Charging Stations by Ginger R. Burrell

Another Twentysix Gasoline Stations by Gregory Eddi Jones

Undergraduate Research Talk by Gabriella Wellons

Are you an undergraduate student who is curious about the research process? Would you like to hear about the experience of one of your peers? Join us Wednesday, November 8th for a talk by Gabriella Wellons, undergraduate in Art History.

Ancient Graffiti and Emulation of Moche Mural Wall Paintings 

Gabriella Wellons, History of Art

Wednesday, November 8th, 12:10-1:00pm

Moffitt Library, Fourth Floor

During her summer travel to north coastal Peru, UC Berkeley senior Gabriella Wellons created a graphic record of graffiti at the Huacas de Moche archaeological complex, the site of a former urban and religious center with two monuments (Huaca del Sol y Huaca de la Luna), located within the Moche Valley. Her honors thesis will explore the relationships between ancient graffiti, murals, and ceremonial spaces, and the possible purposes and meanings of incised imageries set within the context of Moche visual culture. Gabriella is a recipient of the Haas Scholars Program, Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program, International Studies Institute (IIS) Undergraduate Merit Scholarship, George A. Miller Scholars Program and the Digital Humanities at Berkeley Summer Institute Fellowship.
