Ed Ruscha: "Drum Skins" will debut a new body of more than a dozen round paintings made between 2017 and 2019 by the pioneering American artist known for his playful use of language. The presentation features text Ruscha painted on found drum heads that he has collected over the past 40 years. Informed by memories of the distinctive slang he grew up hearing in Oklahoma, the phrases consist of double negatives such as “I Never Done Nobody No Harm” and “I Ain’t Telling You No Lie.”

Following the opening, the exhibit will be on display through July 12.
