Scott Treleaven (b. 1972, Canada) lives and works in New York City. He attended York University (1991-1992), Ontario College of Art and Design (1993-1996), and University of Toronto (1998-1999). Treleaven’s work centres around atypical cultural phenomena and marginal cultures and he first came to attention in 1996 with his initial foray into filmmaking, Queercore: A Punk-U-Mentary. After the success of the film, he began working on a serial publication entitled This Is The Salivation Army (1996-1999), the first “queer punk pagan” zine. In 2006, on the tenth anniversary, a compendium of the zine was jointly published in book format by Printed Matter and Art Metropole. Treleaven has had solo exhibitions at Invisible-Exports, New York City (2013); Marc Selwyn Fine Art, Los Angeles (2010); Kavi Gupta Gallery, Chicago (2009); and The Breeder, Athens (2009). Recent group exhibitions include White Petals Surround Your Yellow Heart, Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), Philadelphia (2013); Dark Cube, Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2012); In Numbers, Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London (2012); AYE Dunkelblau, Künstlerhaus Stuttgart (2012); Male, Maureen Paley, London (2010); and The Art on Paper Biennial, Weatherspoon Art Museum, New York City (2010).
