Los Angeles Arts & Culture: John Baldessari is a busy man, with work currently being featured in more than five shows in the greater Los Angeles area, including the stellar prints he collaborated on with Gemini G.E.L., and the Sediments show at Margo Leavin.

The biggest show of Baldessari's art is currently on exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and is a comprehensive retrospective of the California artist's work, Pure Beauty. The exhibit displays150 pieces spanning the artist's career from 1962 to the present day, and includes works on canvas, photography, videos, and artist's books.

In addition to an installation at the LACMA, Baldessari is also the first contemporary artist to create an iPhone app.

Based on his famous piece, In Still Life 2001-2010, the app allows the user to interact with the piece and make it your own unique piece of artwork.

Baldessari says, "When someone creates their own In Still Life 2001-2010, it becomes their own artwork. It's not mine. It's theirs." Check it out at on his website In Still Life 2001-2010.
