Jeff Wall, Gregory Crewdson, and John Baldessari

Watching the three movies one really stood out in my mind and that was on the one with John Baldessari. He didn't make much sense to me in the movie. I would watch and listen to him I got to think, does this guy really know art? I couldn't quite wrap my brain about what he was saying, then I had to dig deeper into his art. It is all about perception. He takes items that would be magnificent art and seems to add something to it: may that either be good or not is in the eye of the beholder. At the same time he really makes you wonder, what is considered art??? I think the more we dive into it the more difficult that answer would be.
