NEW YORK--Michigan-born artist Jim Shaw to speak about his unique visionary approach that led to development of a new but fictitious religion, "Oism." It all takes place this Saturday at the New Museum as part of a solo exhibition “The End is Here.” For over thirty years, Shaw has developed a reputation for mining imagery of America's political, social, and spiritual histories. This exhibition encompasses three floors of the New Museum, and includes his personal collection of religious didactic materials, many of which were aquired on eBay. [Tickets]
