Opening on January 10, 2007, David Zwirner is pleased to present the first U.S. viewing of Klatsassin, an exhibition of new work by Canadian artist Stan Douglas. In 2006, Klatsassin premiered at the Vienna Secession in Vienna, Austria. The exhibition at David Zwirner is concurrent with Stan Douglas: Inconsolable Memories at The Studio Museum in Harlem, on view through March 18, 2007, which features a major work: a 16mm film based in part on Tomás Gutiérrez Alea's 1968 film, Memorias del Subdesarrollo (Memories of Underdevelopment). Douglas recently co-curated Beyond Cinema: The Art of Projection, Films, Videos, and Installations from 1963 to 2005 at Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, Germany (through February 4, 2007).
