Stan Douglas: The Secret AgentStan Douglas: The Secret Agent

Published by Ludion.
Foreword by Dirk Snauwaert. Text by Eric C. H. De Bruyn, Jason E. Smith. Afterword by Séamus Kealy.

Stan Douglas: The Secret Agent surveys three recent works by Stan Douglas (born 1960), all dealing with the politics and culture of the turbulent 1970s. The video installation The Secret Agent, which lends this monograph its title, transposes Joseph Conrad’s 1907 novel to Lisbon during the upheaval following the Carnation Revolution of 1974. Disco Angola compares two roughly simultaneous moments—the hedonistic glamour of New York nightlife in the ’70s and the Angolan Civil War—in a series of eight staged historical photographs set in New York and Angola. The third work, Luanda-Kinshasa, is a six-hour jazz film set in 1974, constructed around 11 songs recorded at the legendary 30th Street Studio where the likes of Miles Davis and Glenn Gould worked. Stan Douglas: The Secret Agent includes original scripts, film stills, production shots and extensive archival material to illustrate these crucial works from Douglas’ oeuvre.

Douglas, Stan

This volume is the third annual publication celebrating the winner of the Scotiabank Photography Award, Canada's largest contemporary photography award for an established Canadian artist. Photography has played a vital role in Stan Douglas' artistic development. This publication highlights the significance of the photographic image in the critical and historical reception of Douglas' approach to art and media. The stories, sites and events that Douglas explores are populist, literate and timely. His photographs frequently describe the overlooked histories of cultural identity, displacement and injustice that reveal an uncanny resemblance to present-day events. This is achieved through an insightful attention to photography as both medium and subject. Folding the spectator into the visual culture of memory and oblivion that photographs evoke initiates profound observations about the ubiquity of photography in contemporary culture. The photographs of Stan Douglas affirm the validity and volatility of the photographic medium at this decisive moment in the history of art and photography.

Stan Douglas: EntertainmentStan Douglas: Entertainment

Published by The Power Plant.
Introduction by Melanie O’Brian. Text by Louis Kaplan, Maria Muhle.

Entertainment is a critical reader accompanying the Vancouver artist’s recent exhibition of photographs at The Power Plant in Toronto. This body of work is a meticulous studio project for which Douglas assumed the identity of a character working as a Weegee-esque photojournalist and commercial photographer in midcentury Vancouver.
