Book Launch

Stan Douglas: Abbott & Cordova, 7 August 1971

The atrium in the Woodward’s building is home to a massive piece of public art by Stan Douglas that depicts the aftermath of Vancouver’s 1971 Gastown Riot in striking, painstaking detail. The new book Stan Douglas: Abbott & Cordova, 7 August 1971 chronicles the story of the 30 x 50-foot translucent photo mural—which was shot over three nights on a historically accurate set built in the PNE parking lot—the Gastown Riot, and the politics of urban conflict at large.

The book launch takes place Friday, February 10, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at the Charles H. Scott Gallery at Emily Carr (1399 Johnston Street, Granville Island).
