Doug’s Catalogue
By Emmy Lee Wall on August 6, 2013

Simultaneous to planning Doug’s show we’re working on a catalogue which will be the first comprehensive monograph on Doug’s work, as well as documenting the Vancouver Art Gallery’s presentation. I don’t want to spill the beans just yet but suffice it to say we have a truly stellar roster of curators, art historians and writers lined up to contribute from a wide range of disciplines and I’m sure their varied interests and experience will lend a lot of insight into Doug’s work. Daina Augaitis, the Gallery’s Chief Curator/Associate Director will be penning an essay charting the trajectory of Doug’s artistic practice. And given Doug’s parallel career as an author, it’s only natural that he will be contributing texts as well. Because we want to include images not only of past bodies of work but also new installations as well as photographs of the work in situ at the Gallery, we’ll be scrambling like mad as soon as the show goes up on May 31st to document it all. The anticipated release date is July, 2014.
