Join us at the opening of Learning to Read with John Baldessari. This major survey will feature more than 80 works including early instruction paintings and his iconic photo-collages, as well as videos, sculptures, text-based works and editions from a career spanning more than half a century.
John Baldessari is one of the most influential artists of the past five decades, he has continually investigated how image and language collide and collude, and how art itself is made and understood. Using devices such as visual puns, word games, quotations and instructions, the artist employs a wry humor that, beneath the surface, touches on deeper truths regarding how we communicate through culture, and how art might reinvent itself.
