Stripped (Sixty-Six Sunsets Stripped) (2012)
Stripped (Sixty-Six Sunsets Stripped) is a print-on-demand homage to Ed Ruscha’s 1966 Every Building on the Sunset Strip using Google image search results. The book follows Ed’s layout and the total length of the pages is 25 feet (as was his work, which folded out into one long strip).
Stripped is part of ABCED, a collaborative project realized by ABC Artists’ Books Cooperative on the occasion of Ed Ruscha’s 75th birthday. ABCED includes 33 books by 22 artists, and launched at Amsterdam Offprint, London Art Book Fair, and New York Art Book Fair in September 2012.
ABCED and Stripped were featured in Ed Ruscha / Books & Co. at Gagosian Gallery, 980 Madison Avenue March 5–April 27, 2013. A copy of Stripped is now in the artists’ books collection at MoMA Library in New York, included as part of MoMA’s acquisition of Library of the Printed Web.
