Marian Goodman Gallery is very pleased to announce The Tetrad Series, an exhibition of new paintings by John Baldessari, which represents an exciting departure from his previous work. It opens on Friday evening, April 16,1999 and continues through May 21, 1999.

The Tetrad Series demonstrates a significant new visual direction for Baldessari. These 15 new large-scale works measure 8' x 8'. They essentially depict four elements of representing thought. Three of these elements employ imagery either from film and or video, from art (specifically Goya) and from life (objects). The fourth element employs excerpts of text from the Portuguese writer, Fernando Pessoa. This is Baldessari's first solo exhibition with the Marian Goodman Gallery.

Please join us for an opening reception for the artist on Friday April 16 from 6 to 8 pm.
