It’s Raymond Pettibon’s seventh solo exhibition at David Zwirner Gallery. Raymond Pettibon is considered as one of the most influential contemporary artists working today. He is included in the 52nd Venice Biennale (until November 21, 2007). Recently his work has also been shown at CAC Málaga, Spain; Kestner Gesellschaft, Hannover, Germany and Kunsthalle Wien, Austria.
