Opening on March 19, 1993 the gallery will show a video installation of Canadian artist STAN DOUGLAS. In his first one-man exhibition in the United States the artist will show his 1992 work entitled "Hors-Champs." The piece was produced by the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and was first shown at last year's "DOCUMENTA IX" in Kassel, Germany. 

 

"Hors-Champs", a video filmed "live" by STAN DOUGLAS and one other camera man, records the performance of four American musicians playing a Free Jazz composition. "Free Jazz", an idiom of African-American music which became prominent in the late 1960's and early 70's, is characterized by group improvisation and harmonic freedom. By choosing four American musicians (George Lewis - trombome; Douglas Ewart - saxophone; Kent Carter - bass, and Oliver Johnson - drums) who either lived in France during the Free Jazz moment or who still reside there today STAN DOUGLAS points to the continuous presence of African-American music in Europe, starting with Josephine Baker and Sidney Bechet and continuing to the present. The performance itself confronts us with a microcosm of black music, as it brings together the traditions of Call and Response, Blues, Gospel and Jazz in a "Free" setting. In its complexity the music reminds us of a significant African-American cultural achievement.

We are pleased to announce the opening of David Zwirner, a gallery located on the ground floor of 43 Greene Street in lower Soho. The gallery will focus on contemporary and emerging artists from the United States as well as from Europe. We will open on February 5, 1993 with an exhibition of new work by the Austrian artist FRANZ WEST. During the remainder of this season we will exhibit works by STAN DOUGLAS, ANGELA BULLOCH, KEVIN LANDERS and FRED EINHORN; as well as a special project by RAYMOND PETTIBON.

 

The gallery's inaugural exhibition will feature new work by FRANZ WEST. In this show, the artist's first one-person exhibition in the United States since his "Possibilities" show at the P.S.1 Museum in June 1989, FRANZ WEST will exhibit a series of new sculptures and an installation which includes a video made in collaboration with the Austrian film-maker BERNARD RIFF.
