Jeremy Shaw (born 1977) is a Canadian visual artist based in Berlin, Germany.[1]

He works in various media to explore altered states and the cultural and scientific practices that aspire to map transcendental experience.[2] Shaw's artworks often combine elements of cinema vérité, conceptual art, music video, scientific research, and science fiction. His practice spans across media including film, video, photography, sculpture, music and performance[3] and deals with recurring themes around belief-systems, drugs, neuroscience, subculture, dance and evolution.[4]


Shaw has exhibited extensively including solo exhibitions at Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2020)[5], Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin (2013), and MoMA PS1, New York (2011), and participated in various international surveys, including the 57th Venice Biennale (2017), and Manifesta 11, Zurich (2016).[6]

In 2016 Shaw was awarded the Sobey Art Award.[7]

Jeremy Shaw's work is included in numerous permanent collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA, Tate Modern, London, UK, Centre Pompidou, Paris, France, National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, Canada, and Sammlung Zeitgenössische Kunst des Bundes, Bonn, Germany.[1]
