Team SHaG
- Additional Information -

Team SHaG is a name three painters (Amy Sillman, David Humphrey and Eliott Green) have assumed for this series of what they refer to as "team paintings" - a very particular version of the exquisite corpse practice. All established artists, longtime friends and mutual fans  they share certain painterly concerns, but each have a distinctive visual language of their own. Sillman, Humphrey and Green created a series of paintings where all worked on each canvas in a changing sequence, so each of them had a chance to either start, be in the middle or complete a given painting.
