Stigma, 1977, video still.

Jamie Crewe, recipient of the 2019/​20 Margaret Tait Award, presents a contextual screening bringing together references that have shaped the development of their Award commission, Ashley (2020). The screening includes a selection of ghost stories which touch on themes of fear and isolation arising from contemporary experiences of womanhood.

The Margaret Tait Award is Scotland’s most prestigious moving image prize for artists. Inspired by the pioneering Orcadian filmmaker and poet Margaret Tait (1918 – 99), the award recognises experimental and innovative artists working with the moving image, offering a unique avenue of commissioning and production support and providing a high-profile platform to exhibit newly commissioned work. Established in 2010, the Margaret Tait Award is a LUX Scotland commission delivered in partnership with Glasgow Film, with support from Screen Scotland.

The Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) is located on Sauchiehall Street, accessible via Cowcaddens subway station, Charing Cross train station, and 3, 4/​4A, 18 and 19 bus services.
