This event has ended.

David Zwirner presents an exhibition of new work by Raymond Pettibon. It coincides with the largest show of the artist’s work to date at the New Museum in New York (on view from February 8 through April 9, 2017)—his first major museum exhibition in the city—which will travel to the Bonnefantenmuseum Maastricht, The Netherlands and the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow. The artist’s tenth solo show at David Zwirner, TH’ EXPLOSIYV SHOYRT T follows 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.
