John Baldessari at Craig F. Starr Gallery

Craig F. Starr Gallery is pleased to present John Baldessari: Paintings 1966-68, on view from April 7 through May 20, 2017.

The exhibition brings together a selection of John Baldessari’s (b. 1931) paintings from 1966-68 and includes examples of the experimental, small canvases and the larger Text and Photo-Text Paintings. It is the first focused presentation of these groundbreaking works since they were originally shown together at Molly Barnes Gallery in 1968. Among the earliest examples of Conceptual Art, it was with these seminal paintings that Baldessari reconsidered the practice of artmaking, questioned the concepts of authorship, originality, and aesthetic judgement, and first explored the narrative potential of imagery and the associative power of language that continues to inform his work today.
