Jim Shaw's wacky religious world to open at the New Museum

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
NEW YORK---Opening in October 2015, the New Museum will present the first New York survey exhibition of the work of Jim Shaw (b. 1952). Over the past thirty years, Shaw has taken a "connoisseurial approach to pop culture" moving between painting, sculpture, and illustrations to build connections between America’s political, commercial, and religious histories. Michigan-born Shaw collects religious pamphlets, created his own religion, and according to Artnet, NYC's "the New Museum is turning him loose to display the multifaceted results of his explorations."

New Museum: "Jim Shaw: The End is Near" (Oct. 7, 2015-Jan. 10, 2016); 235 Bowery, New York, NY; (212) 219-1222; newmuseum.org
