Raymond Pettibon’s writing embraced the expanse of social-media digital technology for his art while allowing a more intimate glimpse at the artist. Between February 2011 and February 2021, Pettibon posted something in the region of eighteen thousand digital comments on Twitter. SCKONTHIS!! is based on the entire transcripts that appear here for the first time. This eclectic collection demonstrates the range of Pettibon’s thinking as he embarks on an artistic enlightenment project. Pettibon’s digital rants reveal the artist in a creative-informal rather than critical-formal mode. The twits cover topics as varied as golf, oral, life, and art history—subjects chosen at random for broad appeal and examined with passion and insight.

Meet LG Williams: Artist — Shoutout LA, April 29

Meet LG Williams: Artist
April 29, 2021 — SHOUTOUT LA / VOYAGELA — Sarah Abrams


We had the good fortune of connecting with LG Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below:

LG, what is the most important factor behind your success / the success of your brand?

“At the Enchanted Hunters Senior Retirement Village (overlooking Forest Lawn atop the Hollywood Hills), I’ve now scrapped Post-Performative Art—to become ‘The Distinguished AARP Resident of Neo-Post-Performative Art.’ I’m thrilled. By the way, this artistic accolade is one of the most unusual and elevated leisure distinctions found in today’s expansive Senior Living communities. I finally feel I can make my dreams and passions come alive. I’ll tap into my unlimited creative potential after Bingo night in this vital role—just like in the Hollywood movies…”

The Critics Speak…Reviews of Wally Hedrick Uninfluencer: A Forgotten Generation. A Review of Wayne Thiebaud Influencer at Manetti Shrem Museum of Art

— 
—  “I finished reading this rubbish. Predictably, it ends with LG attempting to sell his [art]work!”
—  “This [missive] is basically a cold-call sales pitch masquerading as a critical response.”
—  “I hope [this] gets the attention it deserves: none.”
—  “LG’s purported “successes”…are either inflated or outright concocted!”
—  “I could expand, but, honestly, it would be a waste of everyone’s time!”
—  “[LG] is a sick individual with delusions of grandiosity.”
—  “[LG] is raging mad…”

—  ★ ★
—  “[LG] is haughty, arrogant and offensive, but ultimately pathetic. Oh, he’s a grifter, too.”
—  “I actually feel sorry for [LG], but even more so for the people who live in fear [of LG] and might be manipulated by [his] disinformation.”
—  “[LG has] been spamming me since ’69!”
—  “Entertaining and funny…”
—  “True (unfortunately)”.

—  “This is truly phenomenal…”

LG Williams Participates During Desert X 2019
(Feb 9–Apr 21)⠀⠀⠀⠀

LG Williams Desert X 2019

LG Williams Desert X 2019

LG Williams and The Estate of LG Williams™ is participating during this year’s Desert X (Feb 9–Apr 21, 2019)

American artist LG Williams and The Estate of LG Williams™ (b. 1969, Shell Knob, MO) is presenting a site-specific project “For Sale: One Billion Three Hundred and Fifty Million Dollars — or 3 X Salvator Mundi” (2012/19), inspired by the perpetually changing real estate landscape in a state of constant flux, purchases, sales, foreclosures, bailouts, and reinvention.

For Sale: One Billion Three Hundred and Fifty Million Dollars — or 3 X Salvator Mundi” meditates on the rapid changing face of money framed within a relic of our real estate landscape. This new era is increasingly uber-pricey and art-less, where human connection is evaporating and quickly being replaced by completely digital and random amounts of pseudo human connections, ie money…But, please, let’s not forget: the vestiges of the Cold War in our contemporary context, employing slogans from anywhere, where normally there would be advertisements, and cartographies of military expansion in the California desert — and the like.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Pictured Above: LG Williams and The Estate of LG Williams™, “For Sale: One Billion Three Hundred and Fifty Million Dollars — or 3 X Salvator Mundi (For Andrea Zittel)“, 2012/19, Wooden stick, Nails, Cardboard, Xerox, Plastic Tape, 48 x 18”.

There will be 3 Desert X Hubs locations:

  • Indio, 82713 Miles Avenue, Indio, CA 92201
  • Palm Desert, 73660 El Paseo, Palm Desert, CA 92260
  • Palm Springs, Ace Hotel & Swim Club, 701 E Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92264

The Estate of LG Williams™ would like to extend warm gratitude to Andrea Zittel, A-Z West, and The Derazhne-Fridman Charitable Trust for their generous support.
