New Baldessari

baldessari_pink_cup1John Baldessari is having somewhat of a renaissance. A major show was recently devoted to his artistic offspring, the so-called ‘Pictures Generation‘, and the catalogue raisonné of his prints and multiples has just been released.  If you’re in Europe and can take advantage of the ludicrously low price of airfare/travel there, please try and make your way to the Tate Modern in London. John Baldessari: Pure Beauty just went up last month, and it looks like an utter joy. Those of us stuck in New York will have to wait until next October to catch it at the Met, most likely in that closet of a gallery Levine, Prince, Goldstein, et al. were wedged in to. The Met is mounting some fantastic shows, but those rooms are truly horrible.
