Raymond Pettibon
TH' EXPLOSIYV SHOYRT T

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Raymond Pettibon, on view at 519 West 19th Street in New York. The artist's tenth solo show at gallery TH’ EXPLOSIYV SHOYRT Tfollows his collaborative presentations with Marcel Dzama at the gallery in both London and New York last year.

 

Pettibon's work embraces a wide spectrum of American high and low culture, from the deviations of marginal youth to art history, sports, religion, politics, sexuality, and literature. Taking their point of departure in the Southern California punk-rock scene of the late 1970s and 1980s and the do-it-yourself aesthetic of album covers, comics, concert flyers, and fanzines that characterized the movement, his drawings have come to occupy their own genre of potent and dynamic artistic commentary.
