«The Hidden World, Jim Shaw / Didactic Art Collection» at the Chalet Society, Paris.
Californian artist Jim Shaw, creator of over forty years’ worth of amazing paintings, drawings, videos, installations and performances, is also an avid collector.
Constantly looking for objects of popular cults, comics, rock music, B-movies
and Church paintings found in flea markets and on the Internet, he is now presenting his archives here, complemented by outstanding loans from other collections. The exhibition offers a real immersion into a richly illuminated and universe of paintings, sculptures, books, records and other illustrations for educational purposes that recycle the myths and beliefs of America and elsewhere. Designed as a community of artists, the Chalet Society is a new project offering a reflection on the institution of contemporary art.
Until 29 December
