Tracing shifts in the artist’s means and methods over time, ED RUSCHA / NOW THEN underscores the continuous reinvention that has defined his work.

Colter Wall — Little Songs

The Saskatchewan singer-songwriter’s lonesome prairie songs have a simplicity and authenticity that is pure and timeless country music.


Great Pasta Lives Outdoors

When visiting Austin we usually think of tacos or BBQ. Think again. We highly recommend Patrizi’s food truck. Amazing pastas and salads. Fresh daily. It does not disappoint! 


Living by Design

Five years in the making, Pentagram: Living by Design (two volumes) is the definitive statement on 50 years of Pentagram. It is an in-depth survey of the group from its beginnings in 1970s London to its current status as one of the powerhouses of international design.


Godzilla Minus One

Godzilla Minus One is now live in Japan, and the movie’s opening has broken box office records overseas. Godzilla Minus One is a new kaiju movie made by Japan’s Toho Studios and set in post-war Japan. Per the movie’s official synopsis, “Japan’s economic state has been reduced to zero. Godzilla appears and plunges the country into a negative state.” Directed by Takashi Yamazaki, the film follows a former kamikaze pilot plagued by survivor’s guilt who ends up fighting against Godzilla with the crew of his mine removal ship.
