John Baldessari: Pure Beauty / Tate Modern, London

October 13, 2009

In June 2009, conceptual artist John Baldessari received the Venice Biennale Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement, now the Tate Modern in London dedicates him the most extensive retrospective to date in the UK.

“John Baldessari: Pure Beauty will bring together more than 130 works and examine the principal concerns of this legendary Californian artist. With humour and irony, Baldessari’s work dissects the ideas underlying artistic practice and questions the historically accepted rules of how to make art. Fascinated by language and meaning, he has always been interested in the connection between working in the visual field and working with words.” (Excerpt from the press release).

John Baldessari: Pure Beauty. Tate Modern, London / UK. Press preview, October 12, 2009.
