After a storied – and seemingly hectic – year that included multiple museum and gallery exhibits (Bolinas, Oakland, Brussels, SFMOMA), the Mission School icon turned street art legend, Barry McGee, has a new book up his sleeve. In what has become a series of similarly conceived of and wonderfully insightful publications by the artist, the newest 176-page hardcover book is presented “as a visual collage, incorporating photographs, drawings, paintings and documentation from past and present installations”. Published by Alleged Press and Damiani Editore, the currently untitled book will be ready for release come January 31, 2011. Representative gallery, Roberts & Tilton is now offering the book for pre-order, along with some of his previous books.
