Conceptual artist Allen Ruppersberg’s 25-by-75-foot billboard You & Me was recently revealed at 18th Street by Friends of the High Line. The bold text and bright colors remind of 1960s poster art and concert flyers, which is right about when Ruppersberg began exhibiting in LA. It’s no Maurizio Cattelan’s severed fingers or David Shrigley’s excruciating internal dialogue, but it’s a nice myriad of confusing pronouns. Relationships, huh?
