Thursday, October 11, 7 P.M. A rare opportunity to see a trio of iconic artist Ed Ruscha’s classic films. Salad meets seduction in Premium (1971, 24 minutes), starring artist Larry Bell and model Léon Bing; an auto mechanic spends a very strange day working on a Ford Mustang in Miracle (1975, 28 minutes), with artist Jim Ganzer and actress Michelle Phillips; and musician Mason Williams reads artist’s books by Ed Ruscha in the deadpan film The Books of Ed Ruscha (1969; 2012, 38 minutes). Line forms upon arrival of the first patron, and doors open 30 minutes in advance. Photo credit/caption: Jim Ganzer in MIRACLE, 1975. ©Ed Ruscha. Courtesy of the artist and Gagosian.
