Carnegie Museum of Art presents the most comprehensive exhibition to date of works by Glasgow-based artist Duncan Campbell (b. 1972, Dublin). Based in a sincere desire to understand the past, as well as the conviction that documentary is only “a peculiar form of fiction,” Campbell’s films trouble the boundaries between the actual and the artful, record and interpretation, in historical narrative and media representation. Duncan Campbell includes three of Campbell’s films as well as new screen prints created for the walls adjacent to the museum’s Forum Gallery.
In the three films exhibited in Duncan Campbell, the artist combines archival material with his own footage, “authentic” documents with fictitious elements, to craft engaging portraits of three influential protagonists of the latter 20th century.
