“I’d like to sing for you some of these sentences that Sol LeWitt has written on conceptual art. I feel this is a tribute to him. I think that these sentences have been hidden too long in the pages of exhibition catalogs, and that perhaps by me singing them for you, it will bring these sentences to a much larger public. I’ll use the same ordering and numbering, that he has. I’ll try to pause between each statement, for clarity. And maybe then occassionally I will have to sing one sentence over more than once, and that I might not get the phrasing correct” (John Baldessari)
