MoMA: Raymond Pettibon Breaks His Own Records

Raymond Pettibon: A Collection of Lines screens at MoMA on February 7 and 14 as part of this year’s Doc Fortnight festival.

The important thing to remember here is that the drawings came first. The rest is timing, serendipity, and a healthy dose of nepotism. That’s how you explain the fact that Raymond Pettibon isn’t crazy about punk despite that fact that, for better or worse, he helped invent it.
