John Baldessari by Tracey Bashkoff

Book Description

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.

Books By Author Tracey Bashkoff

Art of Another Kind by Tracey Bashkoff Art of Another Kind, Hardback (July 2012)

Featuring nearly 100 works by Louise Bourgeois, Alberto Burri, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Pierre Soulages, Antoni Tapies and Zao Wou-Ki, among others, this collection-based exhibition explores the affinities and differences between artists working continents apart in a period of great transition and rapid creative development.

Kandinsky and the Harmony of Silence by Tracey Bashkoff Kandinsky and the Harmony of Silence, Hardback (June 2011)

Russian artist and theoretician Vasily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a significant figure in 20th-century abstraction. His masterwork "Painting with White Border" (1913, Solomon R Guggenheim Museum), inspired by his native Moscow, emerged during an intensely creative period in his artistic development. This book examines the painting.

Museum of Non-objective Painting by Tracey Bashkoff Museum of Non-objective Painting, Paperback (July 2009)

Considering the origins of the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum when it was first known as the Museum of Non-Objective Painting, this book reveals the museums complex and sometimes twisted architectural history and the ambitious exhibition programme organized by Hilla Rebay, the museums founding Director and Curator from 1939 to 1952.
