Harmony Korine: Young Twitchy is available for online reading from July 26 through August 25 as part of the From the Library series. This catalogue was published on the occasion of the 2019 exhibition at Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York, of new paintings by the artist. To make these works, Harmony Korine digitally painted different characters over iPhone photographs of his surroundings in Florida, and then re-created the compositions in oil paint on canvas. The publication includes a new text by Richard Prince.
