Jim Shaw

February 15–March 26, 2022
Gagosian, Beverly Hills

In anticipation of his first solo exhibition at the gallery in 2023, Gagosian, Beverly Hills, is pleased to present a selection of works by Jim Shaw, who joined the gallery in 2021. The wide sampling of works on view comprises paintings, drawings, and sculpture that typify the artist’s exploration of the connections between his own psyche and America’s larger political, social, and spiritual histories. These include entries from Shaw’s series Dream Drawings (1992–99), which presents uncanny scenes derived from the artist’s own dream life, and Dream Objects (1994–), which manifests selected items from these nocturnal visions as bizarre, cartoonlike sculptures.
