This exhibition features works of art created during five community outreach projects, which investigate the contemporary relevance of major transformations in Scottish history. Inspired by the portraits and personalities from the Scottish National Portrait Gallery collection, artists have led local groups in four locations – Clydebank, Inverness, Dumfriesshire and Skye – to explore the impact of themes that define the national narrative.
The centrepiece of the exhibition is a powerful new film by Daniel Warren which unites all the projects and reveals how today’s Scots feel about their ability to shape their own lives. Click the link on the left of this page to watch the film trailer.
