5 wonderful minutes with J-Bald

We're filing this one under, if you only watch one film about one artist this year and your time is supremely short this one can help. The Supermarche, Brief, 5 minutes history of John Baldessari, J-Bald, as we'd prefer you'd call him, narrated by Tom Waits. J-Bald's already done everything you want to do with your art, artists.

The only thing we love more than this film? The John Baldessari pencils in it.

Thanks John
