Stan Douglas

Disco Angola

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Stan Douglas, on view at 525 West 19th Street. Since he joined the gallery in 1993, Douglas has had ten solo exhibitions, including Midcentury Studio last year, which debuted a project created in the guise of a midtwentieth century press photographer.

For this exhibition, titled Disco Angola, Douglas has again assumed the fictional character of a photo-journalist, this time a regular in the burgeoning disco underground of the early 1970s New York. For Douglas's alter-ego, the new scene offered a cathartic respite from urban grittiness in a city on the verge of bankruptcy. Evolving out of funk and soul, the disco lifestyle mobilized the gay community in particular, and its self-conscious embrace of glamour and fashion represented a departure from the previous decade's counterculture.
