Weekend Warriors is the catalog of the second exhibition of Conor Harrington at Lazarides Gallery (January 25-February 23, 2008), two years after See Saw,  his first collaboration with this art gallery. The Weekend Warriors show featured "paintings made from oil and aerosol paint alongside a series of new charcoal drawings", in order to explore "the world of historical re-enactment, where men dress up at the weekends as warriors, generals and emperors to live out their escapist fantasies as heroes and supermen".  
The catalog, introduced by a preface written by Martine Rouleau, shows both photos of Conor Harrington at work, painting in the streets and his in atelier, and very high quality reproduction of the artworks that where part of his 2008 show in London.
