Raymond Pettibon doesn’t need any introductions. The New Museum in NYC is paying tribute to the iconoclastic artist in the exhibition Raymond Pettibon: A Pen of All Work. Known for creating the iconic logo and flyers for Black Flag and Sonic Youth’s cover for Goo, Pettibon has been making art for more than 50 years and influencing underground art, music and design ever since. His dynamic, brash and darkly funny portrayal of American icons offers a glimpse into the mess, despair and contradictions that lay latent in the American psyche and gives voice to disaffected youth. Opening 8 February 2017, the exhibition is the largest presentation of his artwork, consisting of more than 700 drawings, early zines, artist books and videos in which he collaborated with Mike Kelley, Kim Gordon and Mike Watt. More information can be found here, be sure to check it out if you're in the city.
