Display featuring Ed Ruscha's celebrated Course of Empire installation, consisting ten paintings originally created for the 2005 Venice Biennale. The work is shown in dialogue with Thomas Cole's five-picture cycle The Course of Empire created in the 1830s. Cole focuses on the rise and fall of classical civilization, while Ruscha's work comprises five black-and-white Los Angeles landscapes made in 1992 paired with color representations of the same sites as they appeared ten years later.
