The Nation//Live Exhibition at Duff House

The exhibition is open to the public from Thursday 29 January to Sunday 15 March 2015, 11am - 4pm, Thursday to Sunday only.

The NGS Communities Outreach exhibition, The NATION//LIVE, exploring key themes in our history as interpreted by Scots today, will be on display at Duff House, near Banff, from the 29 January  to 15 March 2015. This dramatic vision of Scotland’s story includes video, audio-drama, music, performance and sculpture.Between 2011 and 2013, young participants from communities across Scotland explored historical works of art which inspired them to reflect on the story of their own lives. This exhibition captures these encounters between the past and the present, the national and the regional and links local heroes and events to works of art in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery collection. It’s fitting that the exhibition should return to the North-east, as Fort George, near Inverness was the setting for the Union strand of the project, which engaged soldiers from the Black Watch and local school students to make their own medals.

The Nation//Live was also exhibited at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery
