Walker Gone Wild

Mpls wonder-blogger Max Sparber offers a peek at some of the most fascinating esoterica in the permanent collection of my beloved Walker Arts Center. Sample:

The Walker has dozens of pieces by Pettibon; this particular one is an ink-spattered sketch of the most self-reflective character in the history of comics, Batman, facing a woman with a gun while disconnected passaged from his endless internal monologues crowd his head. Most of the quotes a vaguely sexual, or explicit, such as a comment from Robin saying, “I have studied the bats trying to understand Batman’s complex psycho-sexuality.” This actually seems intended as a retort to Batman’s first quote. “Robin,” he says, “you came too soon.”
