and Writing by Allen Ruppersberg
Published by Christine Burgin (2014)
and Writing is the first publication by Allen Ruppersberg as author and presents a wide array of his text based works from the early 70s through his most recent projects. The introduction by Bill Berkson addresses Allen Ruppersbergэs history as both an artist and a writer, an idea futher explored in the companion volume Drawing. Think of Ruppersberg as a prominent figure among the California literati, visualises of the daily idiom at the putatively sunny end of the continent. A lovely nimbleness distinguishes them from their New York counterparts, whose texts more often verge purposefully on the cumbersome.
