John Baldessari: Crowds
ForYourArt at 6020 Wilshire Blvd. (Miracle Mile)
Opening reception for Mixografia's latest collaboration with John Baldessari. The featured series, Crowds with Shape of Reason Missing: Examples 1-6, 2012, examines the idea of removing the predominant subject of an image and replacing it with a nondescript white form. For this project, Baldessari chose vintage movie stills that seem at once recognizable and yet unfamiliar and in altering them created images that now raise more questions than they answer. Over the past 18 years Baldessari has utilized the Mixografia printing technique to play with notions of texture, color and subject. This show also includes a selection of Baldessari's 18 years of collaboration with Mixografia including including A B C Art (Low Relief): A/Ant, Etc. (Keyboard), 2009. On view through June 16, 2013.
