John Baldessari, a brief history

John Baldessari is one of my favorite artists. His blockbuster show PURE BEAUTY seen in London at Tate Modern, in LA at LACMA, Barcelona and New York at The Met was worth the price of an airticket. This 5 minute 55 second YouTube video, narrated by Tom Waits will tell you all you need to know about Baldessari, that's if you don't know it already. He's seen as the godfather of conceptual art, making work that is cool, funny, cerebral, sardonic and provocative. And famous for his statement I will not make any boring art. His advice to young artists is simply this, 1, Talent is cheap. 2, You have to be possessed. 3, Be at the right place at the right time.
