John Baldessari: Ahmedabad 1992

31 May-27 Jul 2024

Sprüth Magers

John Baldessari, a pioneer of American Conceptualism, continually challenged clichés and explored the expectations that shape how we perceive works of art. Throughout his storied and influential career, his distinctive approach to painting, photography, source images and texts recontextualized art-historical narratives and rejected traditional boundaries. Drawing from a breadth of sources—advertising, film culture, Marcel Duchamp, and Ludwig Wittgenstein—he created absurdist, complex yet accessible juxtapositions. For the first time in decades, a selection from this unique period in the artist’s oeuvre will be on view at the London gallery.
