Comic book nightmares
In the early 1990s, artist Jim Shaw began drawing his dreams the morning after. His Dream Drawings usually look sort of like pages out of a graphic novel and show at least five things happening at once. In I Dreamed I Was Attacked by Dogs, Shaw's lecturing at a podium, then in jail, then staring intently at a man in a tie while a stream of eyes flow out the back of his head. Then he's in a cemetery, pulling himself up over a cement wall while dogs yip below him. A series of Shaw's recorded dreams hang on the third floor of LACMA's Broad Contemporary building, against a sparkly dark blue wall. 5905 Wilshire Blvd; through Feb. 24. (323) 857-6010, lacma.org.
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 21. Continues through Feb. 24, 2012
