Born in 1972, Sterling Ruby is an American artist based in Los Angeles. He has come to be known internationally for his work in a large variety of media including sculpture, ceramics, video, collage, photography, and painting. His work is often presented in large and densely packed installations. In opposition to the minimalist artistic tradition, and influenced by the ubiquity of urban graffiti, the artist’s works often appear scratched, defaced, camouflaged, dirty, or splattered. Ruby’s work examines the limits of individual expression against social constraint.
Ruby’s work is collected by numerous international collections, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Tate Modern, London.
The Sterling Ruby Studio Archive documents the activities of the studio and span the artist’s career from his early works to the present. The collection is primarily visual, comprised of born-digital images documenting completed artworks, production processes, exhibition images, research and development materials, and travel. Also included in the archive are audiovisual materials, professional correspondence, publications, exhibition files and related ephemera.
