Sol Lewitt - 35 Sentences on Conceptual Art
Today's post honors Sol Lewitt's 35 Sentences on Conceptual Art, Baldessari "singing" same (some say thankfully only eight of them), anonymous who chose to post comments for the last two days listing out the first ten, and Nick Defour for posting his version of Baldessari on Youtube. Seriously these statements are great to read a few at a time. So looking at the comments for each day this week (hopefully anonymous will keep coming back as promised) you'll get five at a time -- just enough to mull over, much like contemplating the seriality of the incomplete cubes.
I especially liked Sentence 3. Irrational judgements lead to new experience. It followed Sentence 2. Rational judgements repeat rational judgements.
As an added note the Portland Art Museum* has a John Baldessari print as part of the Mixografia show in the Print Gallery.
