Video Installation: “Best Minds” by Jeremy Shaw
VANCOUVER: Nov 17 – Apr 30, 2018
The Polygon Gallery

CATEGORIES: arts, culture, film

Part of the group exhibition N. Vancouver at The Polygon Gallery

Jeremy Shaw’s “Best Minds” is co-presented in partnership with
the Goethe-Institut and Germany @ Canada 2017 – Partners from Immigration to Innovation

The Polygon Gallery opens its doors to the world with its inaugural exhibition N. Vancouver, the organization’s most ambitious project to date, providing an opportunity for the Gallery’s first audiences to witness the imaginative possibilities of visual artworks in discourse with the immediate surroundings of its new home.

“Best Minds” refers with its title to the opening of Allan Ginsberg’s seminal poem Howl (1955), as well as to the straight-edge belief that a self-imposed lifestyle is a better one. The melancholy tempo and tone of the composition in combination with the video footage transposes the violent display into a meditative and graceful one.

Price: Admission by donation

Jeremy Shaw, born 1977 in North Vancouver, lives and works in Berlin.
