Jeremy Shaw

Jeremy Shaw (b. 1977, North Vancouver) works with 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 of vérité filmmaking, conceptual art, music video, esoteric and scientific research, Shaw’s works create a post-documentary space in which disparate belief-systems and histories are thrown into an interpretive limbo.

In 2016, Shaw won the prestigious Sobey Art Award and, more recently, he was awarded a residency at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. He has had solo exhibitions at MoMA PS1, New York, Schinkel Pavillon, Germany, and MOCA, Toronto, Canada. Works by Jeremy Shaw are held in public collections worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Centre Pompidou, France, and the National Gallery of Canada. Shaw currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
