Shearer’s personal archive of more than 74,000 photographic and print materials, and its influence on his larger artistic practice will be showcased. A 19-volume self-published series of books will also be included in the exhibition. The Vancouver audience will be able to take a true comprehensive look at his recent work.

The Polygon is one of Canada’s most acclaimed photography and media art galleries. The Gallery moved into its Governor General’s Medal-winning building in 2017 after operating as Presentation House Gallery for 40 years. The organization has presented more than 300 exhibitions and earned a reputation as one of Canada’s most adventurous public art institutions. Admission is by donation, courtesy of BMO Financial Group.
