Something's Happening Here

May 12, 2009
Vancouver-based artist Jeremy Shaw has been blanketing the city’s streets with archival images from the Expo 86 fair, and will continue for the next year, completing his gargantuan, city-wide installation project on March 15, 2010. The Olympic Games are an obvious impetus for Shaw’s work, which aims to remind us of the last time Vancouver invited the world over. But the poster project also serves as an elongated meditation on nostalgia, civic pride, and the marketing of local culture. Curated by Reid Shier of Presentation House Gallery.
