Our ability to solve complex issues has been hindered by our level of education. Content injection is a negated obloquy. Art gives the viewer equal stake in the topic at hand, and instead of allowing for free communication (whether it be positive or negative by nature), art has a habit of hindering the voices of objection. In order for art to evolve, ALL lines of communication need to be kept open, and not just ones that are acceptable only to the most “open-minded” Globalist. Censorship in it’s simplest form, is ignorance.

Jeremy Zierau explores human communication and the methods we use to process data. He creates semi-objective objects, renderings and videos that focus on the late 20th century ideology of artistic inclusiveness and the rise of the Arts & Craft stores. Zierau holds a BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art.
Jeremy discusses the worst cartoons ever created with Shelby Ling, a colour obsessed textile designer who lives in San Diego, California.
In the second episode of Irrelevant, Jeremy talks with Peter Zohore about Pantsuits. They struggle to avoid Hillary Clinton as they explore her iconic outfit choice and touch upon topics that include: non-sexual adult camps, bathing suits, irredeemable television characters, and Pat Riley.
Zohore, an Ivorian-American performative artist, explores ideas of privilege, romance, and miscommunication within domestic and professional spaces. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
Every Thursday at 8:00pm 1805 Gallery will open to the public for a live taping of Irrelevant. The weekly podcast will feature conversations about irrelevant topics between Jeremy Zierau and a select group of local artists.
Episode 1 of Irrelevant features Jeremy Zierau in conversation with multi-disciplinary artist, Chris Bennett. Bennett graduated from Cooper Union and is currently living in the Wilds of Pennsylvania. Zierau and Bennett discuss food practice, overpriced sandwiches, tomato infestations and much more.
