a brief history of john baldessari

I already had a pretty high opinion of the work of American conceptual artist John Baldessari, but this short documentary by Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman (of Catfish fame) just significantly increased that esteem. Despite clocking in at just under 6 minutes, this film does a pretty remarkable job of capturing the essence of both Baldessari and his work. Plus, it's narrated by Tom Waits. It doesn't get much better than that.
