Fine Arts Lecture Series: Stan Douglas, Thursday March 24th, 5:30pm

Stan Douglas is an artist whose work explores social histories played out through a complex cinematic and televisual language. His interest in the social implementation of western ideas of progress, particularly utopian philosophies, is located in their often divisive political and economic effects. His interrogation of the structural possibilities of film and video, in concert with intricately developed narratives, has resulted in a number of groundbreaking contemporary art works. These have been
included in exhibitions around the globe, most recently in Documenta 11, 25th Bienal de Sao Paulo, and the 51st Venice Biennale.
