Mike Kelley - Jim Shaw - MOCA U - MOCAtv

985 views 5 days ago
Jim Shaw and Mike Kelley started the noise-garage band Destroy All Monsters after graduating from art school in Michigan. Influenced by a range of experimental music, from heavy metal to free jazz, Shaw recalls the aim of the band was to "affect noise."

In addition to playing guitar, Shaw became primarily responsible for the band's visual identity, and used commercial images of children, families, human bodies, and sci-fi monsters to "promote the band, without the band actually quite existing." In this way, his flyers and posters prefigure his later drawings, such as the Utopian Landscape series (1988), which seem to tell stories through absence. Show less
