Currently at the 533 West 19th Street location of David Zwirner in New York, collaborative works collectively entitled Forgetting the Hand by Marcel Dzama and Raymond Pettibon are on display. This is the first time the two locally-based artists have worked together and their modified exquisite corpse technique of swapping a series of drawings to work on where part of what the other person did is concealed leads to some interesting results. Discuss Marcel Dzama here. Discuss Raymond Pettibon here.
There seems to be an unlimited supply of art-related videos coming out all the time. Here is another edition our Rewind feature where we curate a selection of videos for your viewing pleasure. First up is some footage of Spanish muralist Aryz, who has been very active lately participating in most European street art festivals with big walls. Finerats Magazine recently featured him on their cover and also just released a great 11 min interview giving us a great, previously unseen look inside his studio, but also, […]
It’s time for another look at worthy art-related videos that are floating around the interwebs, a feature we call Rewind. Up first is a something funded and put together by Pangeaseed called Sea Walls Expeditions: Murals For Oceans – this time in Mexico, a street art project that brings the beauty and plight of the world’s ocean to the forefront. Watch the video below and fund them here if interested. Other videos to watch include: Vernissage TV films Gerhard Richter’s show at Fondation Beyeler. Documentary […]
Joining an illustrious list of artists (see some of the others here) commissioned by The High Line to design a billboard, Raymond Pettibon chose to use his 2010 drawing No Title (Safe he called…). The scene at home plate features the American artist’s characteristic imagery and text which references characters known well to those in New York like The Notorious B.I.G, Jackie Robinson, and Robert Moses. Stop by next time you are taking a stroll on the famed pedestrian walkway (through July 1) and plan to be back when his […]
After bringing you an initial walk through of the Frieze Art Fair in New York several days ago as well as a second look at the action, here is a final look at some of uncountable pieces of art on display. This feast for the eyes includes the reflective work of Anish Kapoor (above), the neon work of Tracey Emin, the illustrative work of Raymond Pettibon, and more. Take a look for yourself below and come back as we start sharing pics from the satellite […]
Two legends of the Los Angeles music and art scene: the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Raymond Pettibon (who is a musician in his own right and the brother of Greg Ginn – the founder of Black Flag) come together in this music video made on occasion of the band’s new record. Directed by Marc Klasfeld, the video features the artist’s highly recognizable drawings. If you’ve ever wondered how Pettibon’s work would look animated, stop imagining and start watching. Discuss Raymond Pettibon here.
A while back, we told you about the debut issue of Dasha Zhukova’s provocative new art magazine Garage which featured tattoos from prominent artists like Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Raymond Pettibon, John Baldessari, and Damien Hirst. The Hirst designed butterfly in particular was controversial because it was tattooed onto the labia (NSFW pics here) of a willing participant. Now, comes word of a documentary entitled Skin that was produced in association with the project. Check the trailer above. Via booooooom.
Following our earlier coverage of London’s Frieze Art Fair, AM made a return visit before it closed last weekend to spend a few more hours considering the curation and presentation of exhibitor booths along with the individual works on display. See more commentary and additional photos of what caught our eye after the jump. By way of advance notice, in more traditional working environments, a couple of images (especially in the gallery section) would probably be deemed NSFW. So don’t blame us if a colleague […]
A couple weeks back, the Artists for Haiti benefit auction racked in massive numbers to a standing room only, celebrity studded audience at Christie’s Rockefeller Center salesroom in New York. Organized by David Zwirner (ranked 4th on last years ArtReview “Power 100” list) and Ben Stiller, who has supported Haiti through his Stiller Foundation non-profit since the catastrophic earthquake, the charitable event brought together an inspired list of of contemporary art’s most important artists, such as Raymond Pettibon, Nate Lowman, Rudolf Stingel, Jasper Johns, Zuang […]
