In honor of Sprüth Magers’ global representation of the Estate of John Baldessari, the gallery will present a selection of works for The Art Show 2021 that illustrate the artist’s consistent exploration of film and cinematic imagery. Examples from different periods in the artist’s decades-long career underscore Baldessari’s innovative approach to moving images, photography and painting, which he interwove with frequent references to the language of screenplays and his ubiquitous use of film stills. Highlights include early storyboard and text works from the 1970s, as well as important examples from his later series Scene / Take (2014).
