Biography Allen Ruppersberg
A conceptual artist born in Cleveland, Ohio and spending time in
California but living primarily in New York City, Allen Ruppersberg
studied at the Chouinard Art Institute, earning a BFA degree in
1967. He began his career as a painter but soon switched to a
method he found more challenging, which was utilizing books, text and
photographs of which, for each, he collected thousands of
items---mostly about popular American culture.
As both a collector and artist, he created an elaborate web-based project called The New Five Foot Shelf, which
is the contents of a book collection of nearly 800 pages of
encyclopedic text written by the artist as well as photographs from his
New York studio at 611 Broadway
