Stan Douglas

Luanda-Kinshasa

David Zwirner is pleased to debut a new film by Stan Douglas, on view at the gallery's 533 West 19th Street space in New York.

Marking the first time the artist has filmed on location in New York, Luanda-Kinshasa is set in a reconstruction of the legendary Columbia 30th Street Studio, which was based in Midtown Manhattan and home to some of the most renowned musical recordings of the twentieth century. Operated by Columbia Records between 1949 and 1981 in an abandoned Armenian church on East 30th Street, the studio was popular with artists working across all genres. Miles Davis's Kind of Blue (1959), Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited (1965), and Pink Floyd's The Wall (1979) were amongst the seminal records made at "The Church," as were Glenn Gould's Bach: The Goldberg Variations (1955), Vladimir Horowitz's Complete Masterworks Recordings (1962–1973), and albums by Leonard Bernstein, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, Charles Mingus, and many others.
