An installation view of the exhibition Stan Douglas: Cuba, at David Zwirner New York, dated 2004.

Stan Douglas

Cuba

Opening on Friday, October 22, 2004, David Zwirner will present an exhibition of new photographs by the Canadian artist, Stan Douglas, entitled Cuba. This will be the artist's seventh solo exhibition at the gallery.

Rather than adopting the nostalgic approach most often used when photographing Cuba, Douglas depicts living, social spaces in the last instance of what was once called the Second World in North America. The Cuba photographs call to mind Douglas' well-known photographic exploration of the city of Detroit (from 1998), both as a symbol of capitalism, as well as a symbol of twentieth-century urban failures and aspirations. In this new body of work, Douglas has photographed buildings and places that demonstrate how the original intended use of these structures have changed with the course of history.
