Artists' book / exhibition catalogue for show held at Murray Guy, New York, November 3 - December 22, 2007. "Alejandro Cesarco and John Baldessari, have collaborated on Retrospective, a series of twelve silk-screen on aluminum works. Retrospective deals with the idea of looking back, how meaning is re-contextualized through memory, framing, selecting, re-telling and continuance of a dialogue, history and the acknowledgment of influence. Implicit in the project is a concern for the difference created by retelling and representing the past in the present. The segmentation of history is an arbitrary and conventional matter, a story for making the present intelligible. What consequence does this have? Who narrates, and for whom? What is included and what is left out of this narrative?" -- gallery statement. Book consists strictly of illustrations of the works with no additional texts.
