John Baldessari: Double Play

Marian Goodman Gallery presents an exhibition of new works by John Baldessari entitled Double Play open now until November 21, 2012. The exhibition consists of a new series of paintings on canvas in which Baldessari engages us in his strategic and diverse practice of selection and montage, removal and assembly—‘taking an image to make an image.’ In this series, he draws on the art historical canon—rather than photography and film—to juxtapose the part and whole; to contrast and weigh language, image and color; and to interrupt context in order to arrive at new relationships, narrative allusions or an enigmatic totality.
