A major figure in contemporary art, John Baldessari has been termed β€œone of the most influential artists to emerge since the mid-1960s.” From his phototext canvases of the 1960s to his composite photo collages and installations of the 1980s, Baldessari has contributed to the definition of postmodern art. His ingenious application of certain art-making strategies – including appropriation, deconstruction, decontextualization, sequentiality and text/image juxtaposition – was prescient, as was his cogent and witty integration of semiology, linguistic systems and mass media.
