Evangelist tracts, new age fraternities, intergalactic conspiracy theories, prophecies and promises of a better world – welcome to the America of the enlightened. Having shown the fascinating collection of ‘outsider’ art ‘Museum of Everything’ last year, the Chalet Society is the ideal venue to host the provocative cabinet of curiosities of artist Jim Shaw, heir to punk and pop art movements. The fruit of numerous improbable encounters, Shaw’s collection of paraphernalia includes leaflets, paintings, books, knick-knacks and a whole bric-a-brac compendium of liturgical nuggets. It’s a fascinating record of some of the more far-out dreams of the United States, which the Californian uses as inspiration for his surreal, pop-culture-driven installations.
