Title

1972, 18:33 min, b&w and color, sound, 16 mm film on video

John Baldessari introduces Title at EAI on Saturday, November 20, 2010.

Baldessari progresses from simple, static images, such as a rock in an empty room, to complex narrative scenes, like a woman eavesdropping on her next-door neighbor. Through the gradual integration of cinematic techniques—motion, color, sound, acting, editing and arc—the artist inverts the traditional Hollywood model, stressing structure over narrative coherence.
