From the publisher:
"In the summer of 2013, Raymond Pettibon took over one of David Zwirner’s gallery spaces in New York, transforming the high-ceilinged, garage-like white cube into his studio in order to prepare a show of drawings and collages within – and sometimes directly on – its walls. Titled To Wit, evoking the Middle English expression that has come to express a certain formality today and is defined as 'namely', or 'that is to say', the exhibition gave new meaning to the term 'site specific', featuring vibrant, gestural works Pettibon created in conversation with his surroundings that operated as a sort of archive, both product and record of his relationship to that space and time. Unified by their bold, vivid lines and unconventional framing, they feature allusions to a wide spectrum of American 'high' and 'low' culture, from violence, humour, and sex to literature, youth, art history, and sports – embodying the artist’s signature mix of social and political commentary, diary entry, and automatic drawing."
