Playing for Scotland: The Making of Modern Sport

  • Admission free

Join us in tracing the transformation of sport during the nineteenth century when traditional games flourished and new sports were invented. From football to fishing, canoeing to curling, hunting to hockey, this sporting revolution is illustrated through paintings, photographs and prints and a specially-commissioned film.

Dir. Derek Lodge, 2011

Scotland: A Sporting History combines expert interviews and archive footage to explore the history of organised sport in Scotland.  It acts as an introduction for and accompaniment to the exhibition Playing for Scotland: the Making of Modern Sport and aims to offer further historical and sporting context for the exhibits.

Derek Lodge is an artist, filmmaker, musician and keen 5-a-side-footballer.  He lives and works in Dundee.
