About this title:

Synopsis: It's a particularly American notion: If you don't like your religion, invent one of your own. That's exactly what Jim Shaw has done. This publication is dedicated to full documentation of this new body of work, developed since 2001 in installations, paintings, video, and drawings, concerning Oism, the religion that Shaw provides with a back story to the mid-19th century. As Shaw describes it: "Oism's beliefs included the notion of a female deity, of time going backwards, spiritual transience, and a prohibition on figurative art." Shaw's Oist-inspired works include a series of abstract paintings presented as the work of the Adam O. Goodman, an Oist painter, along with his archives of "forbidden" figurative imagery; The Donner Party, supposedly by Oist artist Mandy Omaha, a dead-on spit-take of Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party, only with cannibalistic treats at the place settings; and movie poster paintings announcing hypothetical Oist epics. Funny and shocking, o adds yet another volume to Shaw's continuing investigation of American culture and its assumptions.

About the Author: Jim Shaw was born in Midland, Michigan, in 1952, and received his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. In the 70s, he founded the band Destroy All Monsters (with Mike Kelley and other artists originally from the Midwest). Since mid-1980is, Shaw has produced paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculptures influenced by a variety of sources: dream imagery, pulp fiction, thrift-store painting, underground comics, and religious cults. His work has appeared in numerous solo shows worldwide and in group shows like the 2002 Whitney Biennial. He lives and works in Los Angeles.

Born in Erie, Pennsylvania, in 1951, Allan Sekula is a leading theoretician and the director of the photography department at California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles. His books include Performance Under Working Conditions, Photography Against the Grain: Essays and Photo Works 1973-1983, The Traffic in Photographs, Dismal Science and Fish Story, which was included in Documenta11.
