Artists Read Baldessari

Democracy Forum of the Japanese American National Museum
Presented by ForYourArt
(This is a ticketed event; event is sold out)

Artists and special guests will read and perform works from More Than You Wanted to Know About John Baldessari (eds. Meg Cranston and Hans Ulrich Obrist, JRP|Ringier), two new volumes of Baldessari's writings. Featuring previously unpublished texts, notes to students, course handouts, texts on other artists and portions of his notebooks, the volumes are an experiment in how a literary genre might encompass artists’ writings, having them stand alone in a book without images. The recital is a playful nod to John Baldessari sings LeWitt (1972), in which he sang Sol LeWitt's Thirty-Five Statements on Conceptual Art to the tune of popular songs. Following the recital, Baldessari and the editors will sign books purchased from Art Catalogues.
