Steven Shearer

A solo exhibition featuring Vancouver artist Steven Shearer, this will be the first major survey in Canada of the artist’s work produced over the past two decades. The exhibition will focus on the importance of Shearer’s monumental archive of photographic and print material, collected over the past 25 years, and showcase how this pictorial reservoir continues to act as source material for works across a variety of media, including sculpture, prints, drawings and painting.

Born in New Westminster, BC, Shearer graduated with a BFA in 1992 from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. His work has been exhibited at the Tate Modern, London; The New Museum, New York; The Power Plant, Toronto; the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; and the Renaissance Society, Chicago, among others. In 2011, Shearer represented Canada at the 54th Venice Biennale. He is represented by Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich, and David Zwirner Gallery, NYC.
