Carré d’Art – Museum of Contemporary Art – Nîmes
Since the end of the 1980s, Stan Douglas has been making films, photographs and installations that re-interrogate certain places and events of the past. He appropriates the codes and techniques existing in film, television and press photography.
This retrospective exhibition, presented at the Carré d’Art in Nîmes, focuses on the series of photographs produced by Stan Douglas between 2008 and 2013. It deals with photojournalism, the rhetoric of reportage, documentary fiction, the media and the future of the news show.
