Showing that being slightly longer in the tooth need not stop those creative juices, 85 year old Californian artist John Baldessari brings his latest conceptual creations to Marian Goodman. Creating stuff since the 60s, the prolific artist is known for making work that explores the relationship between photographs, text and painting in a witty and ironic way, and that's what you'll get at this one. In each of these works, Baldessari has paired a detail from one particular painting from the Spanish surrealist painter Joan Miro with a seemingly random Hollywood film still, which has been partially painted. The result is conceptual art that serves as a kind of humorous musing on art, and life itself.
