Allen Ruppersberg

Allen Ruppersberg (b. 1944) is one of the first generation of American conceptual artists with an oeuvre that includes paintings, prints, photography, sculpture, installations and literature. While his career began in painting, Ruppersberg soon shifted his focus to the study of languages, pictures, books, and ideas and began extensively collecting texts of American popular culture and educational films from 1931-1967. With an interest in cultural mythologies, narratives and everyday life, these materials served as a vital source in his practice. Since the late 1960s, his work has been the subject of over 60 solo exhibitions and nearly 200 group shows, and can be found in museum permanent collections internationally, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Foundation de Appel, Amsterdam; and Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt. Career highlights include participation in the Whitney Biennials (1970, 1975, 1991), and Documenta V (1972). In 1985 the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles organized a major survey of Ruppersberg’s work, which subsequently traveled to the New Museum of Contemporary Art, in New York. Most recently, he participated in the ICI tour of State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970 co-curated by Constance M. Lewallen and Karen Moss; Al’s Grand Hotel (1971/2014) for Frieze Projects, New York; and No Time Left to Start Again/The B and D of R ‘n’ R at Wiels, Brussels.
