David Zwirner has expanded to Paris with an opening exhibition by Raymond Pettibon. Raymond Pettibon: Frenchette marks the artist’s first solo show in Paris since 1995 and features both new and archival works.
The exhibition includes portraits lambasting Nancy Reagan, Joseph Stalin and Adolph Hitler and more flattering pieces for the likes of Anthony Bourdain. Naturalist paintings depicting West Coast surf culture with his fictional female surfer Gidget are also included. Pettibon came up in the ’70s and ’80s California punk scene, which you can see in his work as it pairs idiosyncratic images with text.
Pettibon’s work also appears in Dior’s latest men’s collection.
The exhibition runs through November 23.
