Kim Kim Gallery presents
킴킴 갤러리 기획: 더글라시즘 페스티벌
Kim Kim Gallery´s Douglasism Festival is an attempt to appraise and celebrate the eccentricity and uniqueness evident in Douglas Park´s works that are often made in cooperation with other artists, as well as Douglas Park´s other involvement in his fellow artist´s work. The event promises deep insight into the working methods, perspectives and traits of Douglas Park´s input and work.
So just who is Douglas Park? The term Douglasism is derived from Douglasisms: the title of a 2005 event, organized by the London based collective, Decima, taking place on Douglas Park´s 33rd birthday, held at London´s Gallery Upstairs. Kim Kim Gallery adopted this title, considering Douglasism to be a many-layered perspective on the creativity of Douglas Park. The word Douglasism alludes to the names of art, cultural, political and social movements. Douglas Park is a polyvalent aritst, actor, performer, narrator, author and curator, Douglas Park is an exponent and specimen of art-catalysis. For many years now, Kim Kim Gallery has closely followed and supported Douglas Park´s activities.
