Advice Sessions with Duncan Campbell

Part of Learning

28 January 2022
Various meeting times available

Online / Telephone

LUX Scotland offers free advice sessions for artists working with the moving image who are based in Scotland and are no longer in full-time education.

In January, these informal and supportive sessions, up to one hour in length will be held by artist Duncan Campbell, aimed at developing a wide-ranging dialogue around your practice.

Sessions can involve any or all of the following areas;

  • looking at and discussing your work and the direction it is taking
  • talking over some possible next steps’ for your project, including advice on exhibition possibilities and thinking about appropriate organisations to research and approach
  • advice on: developing your practice /​networks and self-promotion /​funding and budget writing /​production and project planning /​organising research viewing of works in the LUX collection that may be of interest.

If you want to share work or any texts (e.g proposals, funding applications) with us then we are happy to look at these with you during the meeting itself.

After your meeting we’ll ask you to complete a short, anonymous feedback form so we can monitor how useful the sessions are.

If have recently had an advice session with one of the LUX Scotland team, please don’t book another session for 6 months. This 6‑month interval’ between sessions is to allow us to support everyone we can.

If all of these sessions are fully booked, please email email hidden; JavaScript is required and we will add you to a waiting list.

About Duncan Campbell

Duncan Campbell is an artist who lives and works in Glasgow. He trained at the University of Ulster and the Glasgow School of Art. Campbell was the recipient of the 2014 Turner Prize for his video work It for Others. In 2011 he received a Paul Hamlyn Award and in 2008 won the Baloise Art Prize.

His art is often based on intense archival research and deals with a wide range of subjects including Northern Irish politician Bernadette Devlin, the DeLorean car project, and German economist Hans Tietmeyer. His films are concerned with these histories and how they bear on the present. In particular, Campbell uses his films to explore how social, political, and personal narratives are constructed and relayed over time.

Campbell is represented by Rodeo Gallery.
