JOHN BALDESSARI
Like many of Baldessari’s recent works of subtraction, Marilyn Monroe: Partially Erased is “about disturbing the hierarchy of vision: You usually look at the face first, and if you’re blocked out, you’re going to look at other things—the way they’re standing, like that. [But] the mole would be there. She never had it removed, so I didn’t either.”
