JIM SHAW
Hairdo
Limited edition of 100
£350 / ON SALE NOW 

The third edition in the series marking BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art tenth birthday, the exclusive new print by Jim Shaw whose work Hairdo, 2012 goes on sale, 9 November 2012. 

Hairdo is produced especially by Jim Shaw for his exhibition The Rinse Cycle at BALTIC, Gateshead. The comic book image of a 1960s bouffant wig references a passage from Shaw’s proposed prog rock opera based on his fictional religion Oism, a narrative he has been working on for more than 20 years. The image also refers to the mural The Rinse Cycle 2012, included in the exhibition, in which a group of oversized bouffant hairdos hover around a desert landscape they share with the interior view of a washing machine in mid-cycle. 

Jim Shaw is one of America’s most important and prolific contemporary artists. Part of a ground-breaking group that graduated from CalArts in the late 1970s including Mike Kelley, John Miller and Tony Oursler, Shaw has one of the most distinctive visual imaginations of his generation. BALTIC, Gateshead presents the first large-scale solo exhibition since 1999 (9 November 2012 – 17 February 2013).

The print Hairdo, 2012 is a limited edition series of 100 prints which are signed and numbered by the artist and retails at £350.
