Art In America

Raymond Pettibon

at David Zwirner,
519 W 19th St

Raymond Pettibon's sexually explicit, profane and literary salon-style installation "To Wit" is something you'll want to spend some time with. His paintings, drawings and collages reference texts by Proust and Flaubert, while Bob Dylan and Bazooka Joe show up in the comic book-like drawings. Don't ruin the fun by trying to extract a coherent story from this wonderfully incoherent installation.
