The first of a projected four-volume set, this lavishly illustrated book features about 500 works, and chronicles an important shift in Baldessari’s thinking during these formative years. Included are such landmark works as the Cremation Project (1970), where Baldessari incinerated the “body” of work he had made between 1953 and 1966. The ashes of the cremated works were then baked into cookies, and the rest sealed in a book-shaped urn, which he then presented along with a plaque announcing the “life” and “death” dates. Baldessari’s work and teaching have been greatly influential on a subsequent generation of artists.

Edited by Robert Dean, editorial director, and Patrick Pardo, research editor of the John Baldessari Catalogue Raisonné; With an essay by Yve-Alain Bois (professor at the School of Historical Studies, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey) considering Baldessari’s ethos as a generator of his artistic practice. Including an interview with Christopher Knight and a detailed chronology of the artist’s life and work.
