Jeremy Shaw

Jeremy Shaw (b. 1977, North Vancouver) works in a variety of media to explore altered states and the cultural and scientific practices that aspire to map transcendental experience. Often combining and amplifying strategies from the realms of conceptual art, ethnographic film, music video, mystical and scientific research, Shaw proposes a post-documentary space in which disparate ideals, belief-systems and narration are put into crisis. Shaw has had solo exhibitions at MoMA PS1, New York; Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin; and MOCCA, Toronto. He has been featured in group exhibitions at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; and KW Institute, Berlin. Work by Shaw is held in public collections worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the National Gallery of Canada. He was featured in Manifesta 11, Zurich, and was shortlisted for the 2016 Sobey Art Award.
