Highly influential artist and teacher John Baldessari became known in late 1960s Southern California as a conceptual painter, and since then he has worked in a variety of other media, including photography, artist books, video and printmaking. Baldessari has engaged the theme of music off and on throughout his career, but until now, those investigations haven't been seen in one cohesive volume. With more than 50 color images of paintings, photographs, videos and mixed media works spanning from 1970 through 2007, this compendium illustrates Baldessari's complex relationship with text, image and sound, examining the centrality of music in his oeuvre. Featuring pieces such as the important 1972 video work, "Baldessari Sings LeWitt," in which he set Sol LeWitt's theoretical reflections on art to music, this connoisseur's essential also includes many lesser-known and recent works--like a 2006 drum kit print with a yellow face over-painted in yellow and blue and a 2007 print series, "Noses & Ears, Etc."
