Agrafé. 27 x 30,5 cm. 24 p Textes en anglais, français, allemand et italien avec 10 photos reproduites Édition originale. Légèrement tâché avec petits défauts. Le premier livre d'artiste de Baldessari, qui publie ses paraboles, en quatre langues, sous une forme d'un calendrier mural muni du trou nécessaire à sa fixation. Baldessari pose la question, comme d'autres artistes à cette époque, de la présentation des aeuvres d'art. Le livre enlève-t-il la pertinence d'une aeuvre préexistante ou l'oeuvre prend-elle la forme du livre et serait donc une seconde incarnation... Réf. Künstler Bücher I p. 16 à 19.

Description: Giclée print and acrylic on photo paperUSA, 2007John Baldessari (born 1931) - US American artistSigned and dated lower right 'Baldessari 07'Numbered lower left '30/30'From the series 'Noses and Ears, Etc.', edition of 30 + 10 Artist's ProofsPrints by Baldessari take up to 135.000 at international auctionsMatted and framed120 x 61 cm (framed)Good conditionThis giclée print by John Baldessari (born 1931) shows one giant colourful ear. As the title suggests, it is Beethoven's ear. Beethoven had a hearing defect, which ultimately made him deaf. The work is part of a series entitled 'Noses and Ears, Etc.' wherein Baldessari treats the subject of music in relation to painting, photography and sculpture. He once said of the series "perhaps these works can be seen as not painting, photography or sculpture, but a melding of all three".The work is signed and dated lower right 'Baldessari 07' and numbered lower left '30/30'. The print and frame are in good condition with slight signs of wear. The photo paper is slightly warped. The piece measures 120 x 61 (framed); 114 x 55.5 (print size). There is a label verso with information on the artist and the work.John Baldessari (born 1931)The US-American artist John Baldessari is an important representative of contemporary new media and concept art. He was born in 1931 in California and now resides in Santa Monica, LA. The artist studied as an autodidact and now teaches at the University of California in Los Angeles. He gained fame in 1970 with his 'Cremation Project' where he burnt his own paintings in public. He then focused on the exchange between image and language. His oeuvre comprises works of photography, video performances, collages and cut-ups. Baldessari's works were shown at the Biennale in Venice and twice at the Documenta in Kassel.

Description: ''Three Moments'', The artist's interpretation of trusteeship: trapeze / high wire act, billiard table and board room, appears unsigned, printed photograph with hand-painted additions on paper in two parts laid to artist's board, irregular shape: 36'' H x 24'' W, est: $10,000/15,000. Note: '[The present work] is given to the recipients of the CalArts Trustees’ Awards, established in 1990 and granted annually to two outstanding leaders in the arts: one to a CalArts trustee and one to an arts benefactor. From 1992 to 1999, John Baldessari gave as the award a printed photograph version of this image with hand-painted additions. Approximately fourteen unique versions were given during 1992-99 before this edition was printed'' (S.C. Hurowitz and W. Weitman, ''John Baldessari: A Catalogue Raisonne of Prints and Multiples 1971-2007'', Manchester, VT, 2010). This print was awarded to trustee George Boone in 1998. According to a letter from Steven D. Lavine, President of California Institute of the Arts, and dated December 16, 1998, ''[This print] is John Baldessari's interpretation of trusteeship. The top image is the trapeze / high wire act necessary to keep an arts or educational organization going; the middle image suggests the way we all have to play the angles in these complex operations; the bottom image is one of calm deliberation at the Board table, with one Trustee apparently looking at his watch, perhaps with impatience....John created it especially for us; it is full of visual wit and imagination for which he is famous''.

Condition Report: Visual: The board in two parts, as stated, the upper image on one board and the center and lower images on a second board. The three images individually laid to the two boards. The lower board with slight bowing. The lower edge of the lower board with extensive water damage impacting the printed surface. Three tiny scattered losses on the right side of the red ball. Artist's graphite outlines around the balls. Not mounted or hinged within the original Jerry Solomon Enterprises, Inc. frame.

Description: B. 1931CHOOSING (A GAME FOR TWO PLAYERS): CARROTSfourteen R-type prints mounted on paperboardExecuted in 1971, this work is unique and accompanied by a certificate signed by the artist.PROVENANCEGian Enzo Sperone, New YorkGalleria Massimo Minini, BresciaAcquired directly from the above by the present owner in the early 1980sEXHIBITEDMilan, Galleria Toselli, John Baldessari: Choosing, Aligning, Floating, 1973NOTE"This work is part of a series of works about choosing. In this version a group of carrots was available from which to choose. A participant was asked to choose any three carrots from the group for whatever reason he/she might have at the moment. The three chosen carrots were then placed upon a surface to be photographed. I chose one of the three carrots for whatever reason I might have had at the moment. A photograph was taken of the selection process. The chosen carrot was carried over; the two other carrots not chosen were discarded; two new carrots were added. The next choice was made, and so on. Each of the participants develops strategies unknown to the other player as the selection process continues until all the other carrots are used." (John Baldessari, December 1971) John Baldessari is one of the original group of key conceptual artists who rose to prominence in the 1960s. His work plays with contemporary art theory, ironicising it, and treating it with a deadpan absurdist humour. Choosing (A Game for Two Players): Carrots builds on the artist's series of Commissioned Paintings, with their focus on the process of selection and "pointing at things". In the Choosing series, he takes the process of artistic selection begun by Duchamp with his "readymades" to its logical extreme. Taking a reductivist attitude, inspired by the minimalism of the period, Baldessari stripped his work to what he saw as the essential issue of art -- that of choice. He also marries this idea with his interest in games and the rules they involve. Through setting a somewhat random goal, Baldessari demonstrates the arbitrariness of choice and also perhaps aesthetic judgement. That the carrots are constantly being replaced brings in existential questions -- like the philosopher's axe, is this the same work of art?Baldessari humanizes the whole process of selection by pointing at the object with a finger. Slightly comical when looked at in each individual photograph, the fingers take on their own aesthetic form -- which some have compared to William Hogarth's "line of beauty" - when the pictures are displayed together. Choosing (A Game for Two Players): Carrots combines photographic realism with the fundamental questions that an art based on choosing must posit: how do you choose: who chooses: and on what basis do you choose? Baldessari has here captured the essence of making art.
