With our sights on the West Coast, we resurrect this clip honoring Los Angeles-based artist John Baldessari. This six-minute film, made by collective Supermarché for LACMA’s inaugural Art + Film gala, is narrated by none other than Tom Waits, who calls Baldessari the “Godfather of Conceptual art” in his distinctly rich tone. Says Baldessari of Waits, “He’s got a great voice.”
