Canadian artist Jeremy Shaw is displayed for the first time in a museum and it’s happening at Paris Centre Pompidou. Interrupted by the coronavirus epidemic, the exhibition resumes from July 1 and up to July 27, 2020. On the menu, an exhibition marvelously mixing music, video, dance and photography with new technologies.

Jeremy Shaw presents a total and innovative artistic experience at Centre Pompidou from July 1 to 27, 2020. As part of the “Mutations / Créations” program that makes of Centre Pompidou a technological lab that the artist shows his creations.

After three editions highlighting new forms of artistic expressions through 3D printing, digital languages and the relationship between the living and the artificial, “Mutations / Créations” is split into 2 major exhibitions: “Neurones, les intelligences simulées” and the Jeremy Shaw exhibitionCathartic Technology”.

It’s the first museum exhibition for the Canadian artist. Based in Berlin, he first explores music. We know Jeremy Shaw first as Circlesquare, a DJ famous in the golden age of the techno years. It’s the first artistic form he explores. This is this very music that leads the entire exhibition.

Enjoy Jeremy Shaw's over-the-top and colorful world that makes us feel dizzy, surrounded by giant screens and wild dancers.

To give you an idea of Jeremy Shaw’s universe, here’s an abstract from Liminals, the artist’s latest project that is part of Centre Pompidou exhibition:

Cathartic technology tells the story of a future of the humanity. In this future, the human DNA has been altered by technology. To keep the essence of a sort of pure humankind in a cerebral support system. It’s this human spirituality in a box that is the center of the exhibition.

To get the story, Jeremy Shaw uses many art materials. First, music leads 7 screens representing 7 groups of people from the 1950s to the 1990s. Their portraits that have been sundered and twisted by technology are brought together into a collective dance. And spectators also are part of this communion.

This is a futuristic report that Jeremy Shaw provides us with, where humanity is changed, altered, improved by technology. We’re immersed in the future’s underground cultures where algorithms, neurosciences, drugs and spirituality are mixed.

Facing this dystopia, one loses their bearings in present and wonders a lot about our possible future and the possibilities of technology. An adventure you don’t want to miss!
