John Baldessari. Pure Beauty
Guided tour by Bartomeu Marí, curator of the exibition and MACBA's director
This exhibition is the biggest retrospective mounted in Spain of the work of John Baldessari (1931), one of the most notable and influential American artists. It contains over 130 works, some of them little known, and reviews the main concerns of this legendary artist who lives and works in Santa Monica (California) and has recently been awarded a Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale (2009). With humour and irony, his work dissects the ideas behind artistic practice and questions the accepted
historical rules for making art.
Inauguration: February 10, at 7.30 pm
Exhibition: until April 25
