This show is actually pretty traditional in its presentation, but–in relation to our recent discussions in class regarding technology and all the trimmings in museum and gallery exhibits–it was totally refreshing to see a very no frills type exhibition. Pettibon’s show at David Zwirner feels very D.I.Y. and rough around the edges, but aside from, say, the lighting, the work hold up on its own. In the Chelsea world of high-tech video installations and the inevitable gadgetry involved, this show stands out in its simplicity. Plus, the works themselves are gorgeous and pretty funny. Also, be sure to check out the Luc Tuymans show, which is in another part of the space.
