Stan Douglas Wins 2016 Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography

Canadian artist Stan Douglas has won the 2016 Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography. He will receive around $110,000 and an exhibition at the Hasselblad Center, as well as a book of his work published by MACK.

He has been included in such exhibitions as the 1995 Whitney Biennial, the 1997 Skulptur Projekte Münster, the 1997 Documenta, the 2005 Venice Biennale, and the 2011 Moscow Biennale, among others.

The foundation praised Douglas for his “open and highly innovative approach to both analogue and new digital formats,” stating, “At the heart of his work lies a strong interest and commitment to social issues of race, gender, identity and post-colonial politics, whilst maintaining a valuable self-critical perspective on the role of the artist in contemporary culture.”
