John Baldessari
by Coosje Van Bruggen
Publisher's Description
"In three provocative and thoughtful essays, Coosje van Bruggen traces Baldessari's gradual shift from the creation of imagist mind games in the 1960's, through his intellectual analysis of social codes in the late 1970's and early 1980's, to an emphasis on psychological and emotional content in the late 1980's. In addition, the texts provide a chronological overview of the artist's career and a penetrating study of the use of narrative and dream structure in the work of the 1970's and 80's. Over 400 illustrations document Baldessari's extensive oeuvre and include four artist's projects commissioned for this publication, as well as special pieces created for the book jacket and endpapers. A comprehensive exhibition history, including films and videotapes-- previously not compiled--a bibliography, and an index, complete the publication."--the publisher.
