Ed Ruscha’s Untitled lithograph is the artwork on this poster advertising the 1983 Chicago International Art Exposition at Navy Pier. This abstract art, printed on archival matte paper, shows fish swimming or being propelled in two rows clockwise around a center made of concentric circles, perhaps a drain or a whirlpool or maybe even a sun. That’s the nature of abstract art --- it can generate many interpretations. Ruscha’s plate-made initials appear in the lower right area of the artwork.
