Description

This first volume of JRP-Ringier's complete John Baldessari writings project traces the genesis and development of the artist's understanding of art in the early 1960s. `More Than You Wanted to Know About John Baldessari` presents Baldessari as storyteller, moralist, teacher and occasional gadfly, always concerned to accomplish what he describes as the central task of art making: to communicate in a way that people can understand. These writings address everything from matters of color in sculpture, to the dilemmas of art students in need of ideas, to the art world's ever-conflicted relationship with money, while always returning to Baldessari's love of language and his longstanding investigation into the tensions of word and image. With numerous never-before-published texts and facsimiles of original documents, this long-anticipated collection will prove essential reading for anyone involved in contemporary art.show more
