Ed Moses: Drawings from the 1960s and 70s documents works on paper done by Moses, a significant figure in contemporary art in Los Angeles since his first solo exhibition at Ferus Gallery in 1958. Since the very beginning, drawing has been central to Moses’s practice. From his large, all-over graphite drawings of roses from the 1960s to his signature diagonal grids of the 1970s and beyond, Moses’s work has always been grounded in graphic experimentation.
The first museum presentation of the artist’s drawings since 1976, Ed Moses: Drawings from the 1960s and 70s is comprised of approximately 100 works from LACMA’s collection, the artist’s own holdings, and those of other museums and private collections.
This book was produced in conjunction with the exhibition Ed Moses: Drawings from the 1960s and 70s at LACMA.
