On September 13, 2008, Regen Projects in Santa Monica, California will open the first segment of a two-part exhibition dedicated to works by Raymond Pettibon (Season 2). Part I, entitled Seminal Work (1978-1988), is on view through October 18 and features many drawings that appeared in Pettibon’s early ‘zines. They highlight a range of topics including film noir, politics, hippie culture, religion, and music.

Part II, entitled Recent Work: Cutting Room Floor Show, opens on December 13. This segment will feature a selection of recent work that, according to the press release, is “generally more densely layered…addressing topical issues of the day.”

Elsewhere in California, Pettibon is included in the exhibition The Wizard of Oz, currently on view at the CCA Wattis Institute in San Francisco. Read more about it here.
