Another pluck and pull from the T Magazine Blog: this time on my favorite, John Baldessari. Boy o boy; I will get back to see this!

“The show might as well be called “Pure Pleasure,” because that’s what it delivers from start to finish. But it doesn’t end there. The tireless Baldessari, a hale 79, also has anexhibition of supremely elegant new paintings at the Marian Goodman Gallery. As if that weren’t enough to satisfy his appetite for turning every corner of art inside out, he has created yet another new body of work for “The Giacometti Variations,” a show of fashion-conscious sculpture opening Thursday at the Prada Foundation in Milan.”

Also, make certain to check his fantastic From Your Desks entry; a favorite of mine, to which I feel quite grateful for his participation.

“Pure Beauty” is on view through Jan. 9 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. “Sediment (Part 2)” continues through Dec. 4 at the Marian Goodman Gallery, 24 West 57th Street.
