Printing Ed Ruscha is the 2016 Anderson Lecture on American Graphic Arts, which this year takes the form of a panel discussion with four master printers who have worked with Ed Ruscha: Renée Bott, Paulson Bott Press, formerly of Crown Point Press, where she worked with Ruscha; Ed Hamilton, Hamilton Press; Shaye Remba, Mixografia; and Jacob Samuel, Edition Jacob Samuel. Each participant will provide a brief overview of their press and their personal history working with Ed Ruscha, followed by a conversation. Karin Breuer, curator in charge of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts and curator of Ed Ruscha and the Great American West will moderate, posing questions that will open our eyes to this significant element of Ruscha's artistic practice.
