Essay by Kirk Varnedoe. Chronology and artist's biographies by Robert Dean. Catalogue editors: Ealan Wingate, Lisa Kim and Erin Wright. This is the original catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibition from 12 September 12 to 19 October 2002, not the later mass-market reprint published by Rizzoli in 2009. According to Gagosian Gallery it was "an exhibition celebrating the years of the pioneering Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles (1957-1967). Organized by Irving Blum, the exhibition brings together historical examples of the artists fostered and represented by Ferus during this decade.
"During the 1960s, under the direction of Irving Blum, Ferus became one of the most significant galleries on the West Coast. This exhibition will feature twenty-two of the Ferus artists, with many works on loan from international museums and private collections. Some of the highlights of the exhibition will include Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans from the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Ed Ruscha's Los Angeles County Museum on Fire from the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC and Ed Kienholz's Walter Hopps, Hopps, Hopps from the Menil Collection in Houston, Texas."
