American conceptual artist John Baldessari was one of the most original voices of our time. In this episode of Sotheby’s Stories, hear how Baldessari famously destroyed all his canvases in 1970 before embracing multi-media, see how his wicked sense of humour then drove his absurd and Surreal works, and learn how he reimagined the logic of space in his celebrated Overlap Series. ‘The Overlap Series: Street Scene and Reclining Person (with Shoes)’ is a highlight of our upcoming Contemporary Art Day Auction (12 February London).
