A boom of construction and architectural development has transformed the Vancouver skyline over the past few months in preparation for the 2010 Olympic Games. Now, Berlin- and Vancouver-based artist Jeremy Shaw aims to enact a different kind of visual transformation in the west coast city’s streets with a year-long public poster project organized by Presentation House Gallery. Comprised of 26 unique posters that are mounted on the city’s telephone poles and construction hoardings every other week, Shaw’s project, aptly titled Something’s Happening Here, pays homage to Vancouver’s last major civic event, Expo 86.
