Douglas, Kristopher, Rochester, Minnesota, will travel to Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa to conduct research in support of an exhibition to be presented at the Rochester Art Center in 2015.  This exhibition will feature the work of South African-born artist Kendell Geers and other artists from the region.  The exhibition will add significant new scholarship in the field of contemporary art, and will present candid confrontations with ideas and contemporary topics that might otherwise be ignored or taken for granted by Western audiences.  A major component of the exhibition is the commissioning of new work by artists living and working in South Africa. Douglas will make studio visits, talking with artists, meeting with art historians and scholars to identify topics for the exhibition’s catalog. Researching spaces for contemporary art in the region is critical for his conceptual framing of the exhibition.
