Jim Shaw is one of America’s most important and prolific contemporary artists. Part of a ground-breaking group including Mike Kelley, John Miller and Tony Oursler that graduated from California Institute of the Arts in the late 1970s, Shaw has one of the most distinctive visual imaginations of his generation.
The Rinse Cycle is the first ever full-scale survey of Shaw’s work internationally and brings together more than 100 paintings, sculptures, drawings and videos from the last 25 years. Included is a conversation with Jim Shaw and Tony Oursler.
