THRIFT STORE PAINTINGS: A Collection of 100+ Paintings by and from the Collection of Jim Shaw
November 14 – December 14, 1990
Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 14, 1990, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
Shaw, whose multimedia work, My Mirage, is the subject of a concurrent University Art Museum/MATRIX exhibition, is a tireless collector and thrift store shopper. He has amassed his collection over countless shopping trips within his hometown of Los Angeles and along numerous cross country road trips over the past ten years. His dedication and unflagging interest in this definitive refuse work is matched with his social and aesthetic sensibilities.
