One thought on “Jim Shaw

  1. I actually love this collection of work, and disagree with the critic. Paddy Johnson describes the curator as a “not just a passing collector of Americana, he’s a true connoisseur of crap.” Being that Shaw collected various works from sites like Tumblr, which is full of emerging artists, and thrift stores, it is a testament to new and upcoming or forgotten work. I find that aspect beautiful. Its truly a testate to the strength of the curator that he could find so many various artists, all artists with different styles, and combined them in a way so that they tell a story without looking visually displeasing. The cohesiveness of the final outcome is a direct reflection on the talent and eye of the curator.
