Raymond Pettibon's work ranges widely in subject matter, but his themes are relatively focused. Whether it's a drawing of a man punching Superman or one of Gumby taking a piss, the chief target of derision is always American culture. Pettibon finds our militarism especially suspect, yet he is often fascinated with violence and likes to draw explosions. This enormous show of more than seven hundred drawings and paintings covers much of his career from the Sixties, when he was just a boy, to today. It includes zines Pettibon made around the time he was also designing Black Flag album covers (his brother was a founding member) and some videos he shot with other artists and musicians.
