Tips for Artists Who Want to Sell

Los Angeles: MOCA, c.1990s. Measures 20" chest, 31.75" length, black cotton short sleeve, tag reads Fruit of the Loom, L.

T-shirt reproducing John Baldessari’s Tips for Artists, from his series of conceptual Word Paintings. During the 1960s and 70s Baldessari hired sign-painters to letter "art" statements onto canvas; he did not paint the words, he did not write the text, he did not touch the canvases. "It's work that is done in one's head. The artists could be the facilitator of the work; executing it was another matter." Printed for and sold exclusively at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA), which produced Baldeassari's first retrospective in 1990. Unworn. Item #5896
