    SFMOMA has just posted this excellent podcast interview with John Baldessari. The interview is a throwback to 2010. Take a listen!

    Thanks for sharing, Kadist! We’re excited about our new “golden nuggets” Artcast series, where we’ll finally be publishing excerpts from artist interviews that have never previously been released. Exciting stuff!
