“He is at the top of the heap of showing us over the last 50 years of post-World War II America. What style, fashion, what people were like,” said Schnitzer. “The way that he took his craft and his genius is totally unique to him. No one else has done these unbelievable, communicative pieces that are so flat and defined. And, like Ellsworth Kelly, eliminates all distractions.”
Mari Hall writes of John Baldessari's goal of inspiring people to stop and think when they see his work.
“He’s picked an image of something that most of us have familiarity about and it puzzles us,” Jordan D. Schnitzer said during his gallery talk at MAM. “It already has a preconceived notion, and that’s a critical word for his work.”
“One of the reasons we wanted to have John Baldessari [art] here is his impact worldwide is so incredible and I think a lot of people in Montana don’t have the opportunity to know these works intimately and firsthand,” MAM senior curator Brandon Reintjes said. “So we framed the exhibition in the context of bringing it and sharing it, which is Jordan’s vision as well.”
John Baldessari's work is easy to like and look at. Baldessari's work comprises photography with circles with primary or complementary colors covering people's faces. His images encourage viewers to stop and look.
"He has these images that look so interesting and innocent and playful, so he seduces us to look at his work," Jordan Schnitzer said.
