A pioneering force in Conceptual art, John Baldessari transformed pop cultural and art historical iconography into meditations on image, language, appropriation, and authenticity. He worked in a variety of media including sculpture, printmaking, photography, painting, film, performance, installation, and books. Text frequently appears throughout Baldessari’s oeuvre. The artist often concealed faces in found photographs with colored dots, a strategy that forces his viewer to look at the images’ contexts, rather than at the particularities of the subjects.
