Raymond Pettibon: Homo Americanus, now on view at Deichtorhallen Hamburg. A large scale retrospective with over 700 paintings, drawings, artist books and more. The exhibition attempts to restructure Pettibon’s seemingly endless work according to various principles. In this context, one order is chronological, while another concentrates on motifs such as Gumby and Vavoom, surfers, baseball, trains, the Bible, the heart and the phallus.
The exhibition is accompanied by the large-scale, comprehensive publication "Raymond Pettibon:. Homo Americanus. Collected Works" (David Zwirner books, 2016).
