Raymond Pettibon and Marcel Dzama at David Zwirner Gallery London
One of the many magical things I saw when I was in London last Fall (the number of which was so large that I still haven't gotten around to telling you about all of them!) was the Raymond Pettibon and Marcel Dzama show Let Us Compare Mythologies at the David Zwirner Gallery. Though each of these two artists has a very recognizable style, the way they created the work for the show--pasting up collages of joint work and then drawing directly on top of them and on the gallery walls--made for such a dizzying and delightful mishmash that it truly felt like a brand new thing, created by the collaborative entity Pettibon/Dzama. Great fun.
