You might think about shadecloth or such for a short term solution --
Campsis radicans, trumpet creeper, might do it for a fence cover in the
long term IF it gets a modicum of sun and isn't a pestilential weed in
your area.  How about Parthenocissus, virginia creeper?  Or one of the
Loniceras (honeysuckle) or Hydrangea petiolaris (climbing hydrangea)
of Clematis paniculata (sweet autumn clematis)?  How cold are your winters
and what's your soil like?
