Allen Ruppersberg: DrawingAllen Ruppersberg: Drawing

Published by Christine Burgin.
Text by Leslie Jones.

Uniquely among his contemporaries, Allen Ruppersberg (born 1944) has adapted the possibilities of drawing to make idea-based work in populist terms, by uniting his twin loves of illustration and literature. Ruppersberg's drawings, which range from depictions of books from his library and letters by authors such as Joseph Conrad and Ezra Pound to writing, portraits and drawn appropriations of illustrations from magazines, postcards and books, reveal both skill and deftness of conception. This survey of Ruppersberg's early drawings--many reproduced here for the first time--looks at his accomplishments in this medium. An essay by Leslie Jones, curator at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, explores the relationship between drawing and writing in Ruppersberg's work (an idea further explored in and Writing, the companion volume to Drawing).

Allen Ruppersberg: and WritingAllen Ruppersberg: and Writing

Published by Christine Burgin.
Introduction by Bill Berkson.

Allen Ruppersberg (born 1944) is among the first generation of American conceptual artists. Allen Ruppersberg: and Writing presents a wide array of the artist’s text-based works from the late 1960s through to his most recent projects. A companion volume to Allen Ruppersberg Drawing, it gathers writings (and visual works containing writing) from series and projects such as Al’s Café, From the South Forty to the Bunkhouse, Great Acts of the Imagination, Le Mot Juste, Free Poetry, Obits and Studies, and excerpts from The Novel that Writes Itself and Great Speckled Bird. In his introduction to the book, poet Bill Berkson writes: “Ruppersberg’s co-exemplars are John Baldessari and Ed Ruscha … Because they are visual artists first, they present language foremost as image--color, shape, light and scale being conditioned often enough by lettering, the quality of handwriting or font, or the format of a book. The upshot is a blithe alchemical switch of sign into symbol.”

Allen Ruppersberg SourcebookAllen Ruppersberg Sourcebook

Published by Independent Curators International.
Edited by Allen Ruppersberg. Foreword by Kate Fowle. Introduction by Constance Lewallen.

In 2011, Independent Curators International (ICI) launched Sourcebook, a new publication series with a focus on artists and their practice, offering a fresh perspective on political and cultural issues impacting and inspiring the artistic process. Each volume is edited by an artist, from a selection of his or her own archive, and is comprised of images, documents, articles, letters and newspaper clippings. For the second Sourcebook in the series, ICI has invited conceptual artist Allen Ruppersberg to cull his archives, stored between his family home in Cleveland and his studio in Los Angeles. Articulated around nine important works spanning the breadth of the artist’s practice from 1978–2012, the publication delves into the primary material that Ruppersberg uses as his medium: popular culture ephemera, newspapers, magazine covers, snapshots, home movies, educational slides, advertising and posters. This material becomes the visual registry that is reconfigured in numerous Ruppersberg projects.

Allen Ruppersberg: Collector's ParadiseAllen Ruppersberg: Collector's Paradise

No Time Left to Start Again, The B and D of R 'n' R

Published by Christine Burgin.

Collector’s Paradise is Allen Ruppersberg’s unique reflection on the history of popular American music. The product of years of combing flea markets and yard sales in search of both the visual and recorded history of rock and roll, this book traces rock and roll back to the Minstrel days and American popular song post-Civil War, in a chronological list of 1,500 key recordings and more than 300 color illustrations of material from Ruppersberg’s collection. In his introductory essay, Ruppersberg discusses the urgency he feels in creating this narrative of a common musical history before it is lost: If you live long enough you begin to see the endings of the things in which you saw the beginnings. “It seemed to me … that this was the last possible moment to be able to gather any of this material in the manner I did and I am even more convinced now that I was right.”

Allen Ruppersberg: You and Me or the Art of Give and TakeAllen Ruppersberg: You and Me or the Art of Give and Take

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Constance Lewallen. Text by Margaret Sundell, Greil Marcus, Tim Griffin, John Slyce.

Allen Ruppersberg (born 1944) came of age as an artist in late-1960s Los Angeles, where he was part of the burgeoning L.A. Conceptual movement—that unique band of artists that included Bas Jan Ader, Ger van Elk, William Leavitt, Allan McColllum and William Wegman. Like these artists and other L.A. Conceptual pioneers such as Ed Ruscha and John Baldessari, Ruppersberg used photographs (both made and found) in combination with text and narrative strategies to mingle, blend and upend both fiction and fact—most famously in “Where's Al?” (1972) and “Between the Scenes” (1973). In this wonderfully designed spiral-bound artist's book, Ruppersberg repurposes a 1956 “Guest Informant” book from the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco as a backdrop for a selection of photographs and postcards from 1985–1989, culled from his own collection, and alluding to earlier works such as “Al's Grand Hotel.” You and Me also includes new essays on Ruppersberg by such longstanding fans as Greil Marcus and Constance Lewallen.
