The wit, intelligence, irreverence, and breadth of knowledge manifest in John Baldessari's work have made it important to many others, artists and public alike. This is the first museum exhibition, however, to show in depth the work Baldessari has done over the past fifteen years.

When The New Museum learned that an exhibition of Baldessari's photographic works was being planned at the University Art Galleries at Wright State University, the two organizations decided to join forces. While the scope and nature of our respective exhibitions differed, we felt that by jointly sponsoring the catalog, more information about Baldessari's work could be disseminated. It is our hope that different points of view, including Baldessari's own in the interview with Nancy Drew, will elucidate his work in the manner it deserves.
