Inspired by the symmetrical, Jeffersonian layout of the American Pavilion' s neo-classical architecture, Ed Ruscha s installation for the 2005 Venice Biennale will comprise ten paintings: five in color, five in black and white, the color paintings mirroring the black and white in both subject matter and placement. Leaving the pavilion's entry rotunda, "C," empty, Ruscha will install a combination of pictures, based on his 1992 "Blue Collar" group, as follows: In the pavilion's lefthand, "D & E" galleries: the original five, 1992 "Blue Collar" pictures, black and white canvases depicting urban landscapes. In the opposite "A & B" galleries: five new pictures depicting an accelerated, aged version of the same urban landscapes, possibly to the point of deterioration, painted in color. Exhibition schedule: US Pavilion, Venice Biennale June 12 - November 6, 2005
