About this title:
Weighing what is art and what is not art and piling both on a canvas has been John Baldessari's seesaw practice throughout his career. Over the past 20 years, as this retrospective shows, his narrative and formal experiments have had a sophistication and playfulness in his use of manipulated imagery and, most recently, painterly color that remain vitally questioning. A companion volume, available seperately, covers the years before 1984.
