Pure Beauty: John Baldessari Retrospective at the Met

This remarkable retrospective of American conceptual artist John Baldessari spans the diversity and evolution of his career in a poignantly well curated show.

In 1970, for Baldessari’s Creamation Project, he incinerated all his works created before 1966. It was great to see a few of the surviving pieces in this show.

Spanning all his major thematic movements, including my favorites, the photocompositions like Kiss/Panic and the red dot series.

As well as some of his video works:
