Gagosian have announced the representation of Jim Shaw. Since the 1970s, Jim Shaw has mined the dreams and conflicted realities of American culture, finding inspiration in comic books, pulp novels, rock albums, protest posters, and thrift store paintings. Often unfolding in long-term narrative cycles, Shaw’s works frequently place in dialogue images of friends and family with world events, pop culture, and alternate realities, blending the personal, the commonplace, and the uncanny. Jim Shaw had been represented by New York’s Metro Pictures, which announced plans to wind down operations this past March after 40 years in business.

Jim Shaw was born in 1952 in Midland, Michigan, and lives and works in Los Angeles. He has had major solo exhibitions at the New Museum, New York (2015–16); Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, England (2012); and Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2012). Collections include the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
