Double Vision – Stan Douglas & Douglas Gordon


This exhibition of the work of Canadian artist Stan Douglas and Scottish artist Douglas Gordon includes a new media installation by each artist. Stan Douglas presents a work entitled Win, Place or Show, which takes as its point of departure a fundamental transformation in the organization of North American civic space in the 1960s. Douglas Gordon’s new work, left is right and right is wrong and left is worng and right is right, appropriates a little-known film made in 1949 by Hollywood director Otto Preminger titled Whirlpool. Juxtaposed, the two works, which both utilize dual projection, reveal surprising correspondences with one another, while simultaneiously permitting each artists’s singular concerns to emerge sharply.
