Through the months of August and September, we have had the pleasure to host Scott Treleaven in our residency program. During his time in North Vancouver, Scott has been developing a new zine, consisting of torn and reconfigured photographic material and texts, which will be published by Griffin Art Projects.
Celebrated for his deeply poetic still and moving images, Treleaven‘s paintings are heavily informed by his early filmmaking career, as well as his work in other media spanning collage, sculpture, photography, and publishing. His seminal zines have been included in historical overviews such as ‘The Magazine – Documents of Contemporary Art Series’ (MIT Press 2016), ‘Showboat: Punk, Sex, Bodies’ (Dashwood 2016), and ‘In Numbers: Serial Publications by Artists Since 1955’ )JRP|Ringier 2009). Treleaven has presented recent solo exhibitions at Invisible-Exports, New York, COOPER COLE, Toronto, Canada and The Suburban, Milwaukee, USA (June 2017), among others. He has also participated in group exhibitions at Grazer Kunstverein, Austria, Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, ICA, Philadelphia, MoMa PS1, NY, The Warhol Museum PA, Witte de With, Rotterdam, Netherlands, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France, and the British Film Institute, London UK.
