Video Response: Wall, Crewdson, Baldessari
Of the three artists we looked at in class, my favorite was John Baldessari, mostly because some of his work was pretty humorous.
But to be honest, I don't consider much of these artists' work 'art'. Personally, I just don't like nude photographs, it's almost too real for me; it's not necessarily pretty to look at.
What stood out the most to me about Baldessari's work is that in some instances, he didn't need any images to convey a message, sometimes art can be just words.
But shouldn't there maybe be some kind of guidelines as to what is considered art?
