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.
An exhibition of new paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Jim Shaw is his first at Simon Lee Gallery London since 2016. As the United States prepares for its upcoming Presidential election, Shaw is more analytical and daring than ever before in his satirical depictions and social commentary.
Internationally acclaimed artists Francis Alÿs, Jeremy Deller, Robert Gober, Antony Gormley, Roni Horn, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Taryn Simon, Wolfgang Tillmans and Rachel Whiteread are among the 37 artists who have given works to create a major new fund ARTISTS FOR ARTANGEL.
