"Well, the only thing I'm kind of sure about is that when two things are brought into some sort of magnetic proximity, that meaning occurs. Two words, two images, two objects, whatever it is. Whether there's universality, or agreement on the meaning, I rather doubt it. That's probably pretty cultural. But it fascinates me that people want things to mean."
John Baldessari, excerpted from John Baldessari: Somewhere Between Almost Right and Not Quite (With Orange), Guggenheim Museum.

John Baldessari was born in National City, California in 1931, and lives and works in Santa Monica, California. His work has been exhibited in museums such as The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York, and in art galleries worldwide. He has also recently curated exhibitions at The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, in Washington D.C., The Museum of Modern Art, New York and The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. He is represented by Marian Goodman Gallery in New York.

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Cristina Bechtler, David Campany. Text by John Baldessari, David Campany, Amy Cappellazzo, Jessica Morgan, Naomi Shohan.

PA is an annual artist’s magazine devoted to artists that use photography. For each issue, an artist is asked to invite a collaborator to engage in a dialogue about their practice. For this latest issue, American artist John Baldessari chose film set designer Naomi Shohan, and the two collaborated on a brilliant and witty elaboration of Baldessari’s treatment of found photography. The book juxtaposes Hollywood film stills from the outsider’s viewpoint--Baldessari’s take on Hollywood--with film stills from the insider’s viewpoint-- that of Shohan the set designer, who has worked on major film productions such as American Beauty, Constantine, The Replacement Killers and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Baldessari is well known for his enjoyment of collaboration, but this volume constitutes his most intriguing venture to date. Also included is a conversation with the artists by Amy Cappellazzo.

John Baldessari: ParseJohn Baldessari: Parse

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Beatrix Ruf.

John Baldessari (born 1931) is a luminary in the realms of Conceptual art and book art, and one of the most important figures in contemporary art of the last 40 years. Since his sensational Cremation Project of 1970, for which he incinerated every single painting he had made between 1953 and 1966, Baldessari's work has mined the tensions between language, image and sign-making. Baldessari unpicks the very mechanisms of media representation, and even the idea of artistic subject matter itself, using painting, photography, film/video, collage and reliefs, integrating images and text from advertising and movies into his works. Since 1980, Baldessari has worked mostly without text in serial photographs and pictures, and strategies such as overpainting, visual omissions and withheld information have increasingly taken on the earlier function of language. For this superbly designed book, Baldessari has designed a sequence of enigmatically fragmentary and geometrically emphatic images, arranged rhythmically across the volume's landscape format, that slowly accrete narrative as the reader-viewer moves through the book. These fragments, derived largely from B-movie stills, lead into a second chapter that reproduces the complete pictures. Juggling these themes of composition, information, omission and rhythm, Parse consolidates Baldessari's signature concerns into a great work of book art.

Hans Ulrich Obrist & John Baldessari: The Conversation Series Volume 18Hans Ulrich Obrist & John Baldessari: The Conversation Series Volume 18

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Hans Ulrich Obrist has been a staunch supporter of the Los Angeles maestro of Conceptualism John Baldessari from early on in his career. For these conversations, the artist and curator were joined by, among others, the Uruguayan artist and author Alejandro Cesarco, a friend and previous public interlocutor of Baldessari's. Baldessari himself offers readers insight into the motives and semiotics of his multimedia work and his life as an artist, always expressing himself with precision and with wit. A recurrent topic throughout these discussions is the interaction of text and image (on which so much of Baldessari's work leans), and issues such as the museum as institution, idea archives and unrealized projects, and on his career, exhibitions and retrospectives of the past few years.

John Baldessari: A Print Retrospective from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family FoundationJohn Baldessari: A Print Retrospective from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation

Published by Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco-Legion of Honor/Jordan Schnitzer Family.
Text by Hunter Drohojowska-Philip.

Conceptual art veteran John Baldessari (born 1931) began making prints in the mid-1970s, and has placed printmaking at the center of his appropriative practice, in which found photographs of people are amended with colorful dots that blot out the heads of the subjects, redirecting the viewer's attention towards marginal detail. “In my work,” he says, “I found that I could be the master of my own universe and control what people see and pay attention to.” For Baldessari, keen as he is to minimize or erase his own manual presence, printmaking also helps to flatten out these collaged additions and interventions, heightening their sense of estrangement and beguiling anonymity. Many of Baldessari's prints series have been extremely influential, such as the 1970s Raw Prints series, for which he amended photos of Santa Monica mallgoers with abstracted shapes printed above the images that replicate details from them; this series was pivotal in democratizing photo-based prints in the art world. Since then, Baldessari has gone on to collaborate with some of the world's great printmakers, such as Brooke Alexander, Gemini G.E.L., Cirrus Editions, Edition Jacob Samuel, Mixographia and Crown Point Press. An essential volume in any contemporary art library, this first full survey of Baldessari's four-decade printmaking career is the definitive volume on the prints, and boasts 140 color plates alongside testimonies from his printmaking collaborators.

Published by Walther König, Köln.

Retrospective--a collaborative project by John Baldessari, the legendary California conceptualist, and Alejandro Cesarco, a Uruguayan, Brooklyn-based artist born in 1975--uses the act of looking back as a framing device and a narrative mode. Implicit in the work is a concern for the consequences of retelling and representing the past in the present.

John Baldessari: MusicJohn Baldessari: Music

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by John C. Welchman, Stefan Gronert, Christina Vegh.

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.

John Baldessari: Films Transferred to Video 1972-1977John Baldessari: Films Transferred to Video 1972-1977

Published by JRP|Ringier/BDV Bureau des videos.
Edited by Nicolas Trembley.

Title (1972), 4 Short Films (1971), and 6 Colorful Inside Jobs (1977), three seminal but rarely seen films by the groundbreaking west coast Conceptualist John Baldessari, are assembled here for the first time on DVD. The films are built around the same principles as the artist's photographic work, and Baldessari's obsession with the non-link, with fragmentation and gaps, is all the more striking in moving pictures. His images do not arrive in a narrative progression, but appear as a succession of near-still, suspended moments, autonomous but integrated, for which it is up to the spectator to build a structure. Title is one of Baldessari's most radical projects, a juxtaposition of minimal images without hierarchy or direction, and particularly pointedly so because the subject is a conventional film, broken into its component parts. First come the objects, the characters, the landscapes, then the frames associating two shapes, and finally the start of an action, of a dialogue. Baldessari's splicing and categorizing reveals the tricks of cinematic space-time. Six Colorful Inside Jobs shows a room being painted in six different colors, each corresponding to a day of the week, leaving the artist a comic figure, and 4 Short Films is the product of a similar ironic twist, a free and absurd association between time, matter and objects. An essential document.

John Baldessari: Prima FacieJohn Baldessari: Prima Facie

Marilyn's Dress

Published by Walther König, Köln.

More than any other artist of his generation, the Los Angeles-based Conceptual artist John Baldessari explores the relationship between reading and seeing, between language and image. In this small, provocative artist's book, Baldessari presents 16 supposedly evocative colors along with the names that they were given by the American paint companies that produced them. Across from each solid colored left-hand page, the right page offers the color's title, creating a concrete poem in four parts. For example, in part one, "Organic Order" stands beside a mulchy green, "Creative Thinker" is paired with a deep purple, "Avant Garde" goes with mustard yellow, and "Abstract" is across from sea-green. Further on we learn that warm peachy-pink stands for "Love and Happiness," while warm pinky-peach represents "Beautiful in My Eyes." Source companies include Pratt & Lambert, Benjamin Moore and Pantone.

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Artwork by John Baldessari.

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.

John BaldessariJohn Baldessari

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Essays by Tracey Bashkoff, John Hanhardt, Frederic Tuten and Russell Ferguson.

The American artist John Baldessari rose to prominence in the late 1960s, combining Pop art's use of mass media imagery with Conceptual art's use of language to create a unique body of work that has become a hallmark of postmodern art. Early in his career, Baldessari began incorporating images and text utilized by the advertising and movie industries into his photo-based art. He appropriated pictures and movie stills, juxtaposing, editing and cropping them in conjunction with written texts. The resulting montage of photography and language often counters the narrative associations suggested by the isolated scenes and offers a greater plurality of meanings. The layered, often humorous compositions carry disparate connotations, underscoring how relative meaning can be. Throughout his long and celebrated career, Baldessari has continued to play with and critique popular culture, and over time he has increased the scale and visual impact of his work. This publication looks at new works Baldessari created on commission for the Deutsche Guggenheim.
