Openings: Barry McGee @ Stuart Shave/Modern Art, London

AM has been keeping a watchful eye on Continental European shows featuring works by Barry McGee. Whenever the cashflow gods have been on our side, we’ve booked the necessary flights or trains to attend as well. This was the case with the 2010 joint show with Danish artist HuskMitNavn at A.L.I.C.E. Gallery in Brussels, and the 2009 three-man show (which also included Ed Templeton and Raymond Pettibon) curated by Aaron Rose at Berlin’s Circleculture Gallery. However, the last time McGee exhibited in the UK was […]

Openings: Raymond Pettibon – “Blankness Is Not A Void” @ Marc Jancou Contemporary

A couple weekends ago, Marc Jancou Contemporary opened an impressive three person exhibition, entitled Blankness Is Not A Void, of big-time contemporary art players, Raymond Pettibon, Scott Campbell, and the late Steven Parrino. Campbell’s contributions to the show (covered), further developing his signature cut currency full sheets, was nothing short of spectacular. However, punk legend, and founding member of Black Flag, Raymond Pettibon proved his importance to the genre with his crude reinterpretations of iconographic imagery. One of the largest concentrations of his trademarked comic-like […]

Raymond Pettibon @ Gladstone Gallery (Brussels)

Having shown in London just a few months back, Raymond Pettibon continues his European tour with a show of new works at the venerable Gladstone Gallery in Brussels. The exhibition continues on Pettibon’s themes of exploring the American psyche through images and text.  His comic strip-style narratives combine stunningly rendered images in the artist’s unique style with text drawn from a number of sources, including poet William Blake, vernacular speech, and pulp magazines. Icons from American culture, including fighter jets, bombs, cars, and UFOs dominate […]
