Double Consciousness explores the conceptual art practices of African-American artists over the past 35 years, using as its underpinning, the "reflexive" nature of art-making which emerged with the avant-garde of the late 1960s. The exhibition chronicles conceptual art as practice of ideas as manifested through the use of everyday materials and objects' performance as action; interventions or critiques; as well as writings.
With essays by Lynne Cooke, Sianne Ngai and Nancy Shaw, and Neville Wakefield. This book focuses on two works, Stan Douglas's Win, Place, or Show and Douglas Gordon's left is right and right is wrong and left is wrong and right is right, which comprised the exhibition.

Famed for his 24-Hour Psycho, Scottish-born, New York-based artist Douglas Gordon (born 1966) is one of the most influential video and film artists of his generation. Produced in close collaboration with the artist, this catalogue looks at his latest works in the context of his earlier oeuvre.
Throughout his career, Douglas Gordon has engaged in an ongoing reflection on the motion picture, examining the relationship between the movies and our common knowledge and perception of them. In altering, monumentalizing, and alienating our collective understanding of film, he visualizes, pictures, and 'sculpts' time.
Many of the key achievements in art of the last 125 years have been worked out on paper. From pictorial investigations that expanded the possibilities of vision to the invention of entirely new kinds of media, drawing has been the perfect laboratory for avant-garde experimentation. Drawing from the Modern traces such groundbreaking innovation through the unparalleled holdings of the drawings collection of The Museum of Modern Art.
