"FOCUS: Stan Douglas"
2000-09-20 until 2000-12-19
Art Institute of Chicago
Chicago, IL, USA

Canadian artist Stan Douglas researches and produces film and video projects that draw on the past and present together to illuminate those moments in which progress is redirected, subverted, or arrested. Made in Detroit, his most recent body of work—which at present consists of 25 large-format color photographs but will eventually encompass a major new video work—documents a city devastated by lost jobs and white flight to gated suburban communities.

Douglas’s work has been featured in several one-person museum exhibitions and included in nearly every major international exhibition of contemporary art in recent years, including Johannesburg, Venice, São Paulo, and Sydney. In 1996, Douglas was a finalist for the Hugo Boss Prize at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum SoHo in New York City. Douglas’s proposed FOCUS exhibition premieres the artist’s new work for film/video, combining his photo-documentation of Detroit with a new rap/hip-hop music score.
