Located in south west Scotland, CAMPLE LINE is an independent arts organisation dedicated to presenting thought-provoking international contemporary art and film for residents of the region and visitors from further afield.

We are a Scottish charitable incorporated organisation. Our charity number is SC047031.



We are really delighted to open our 2018 programme this February with three screenings of Alfredo Jaar’s beautiful 34 minute long film work Muxima, filmed in Angola in 2005. Screening on three successive Saturdays from 17 February onwards, we will also host three talks, each responding to the film from different perspectives. Join us for one, two or three of the talks, and we hope you will enjoy the opportunity to get to consider a single artwork from various viewpoints.

We will begin the second series of screenings in our MAY YOU LIVE programme with a screening of Stina Wirfelt’s 2016 short film Rolls and Shutters. Wirfelt will introduce her film and two others that she has choose to screen alongside. Please join us on Sunday 11 March at 4pm to hear Wirfelt discuss her beautiful film.

We are very excited to welcome Karen Cunningham to CAMPLE LINE in early March. She will be installing two works in situ in our upstairs space, as part of her solo exhibition with us this spring. Please join us on Saturday 24 March 2-4.30pm for the opening of Deploying Culture, which will be on till May. Our huge thanks to those locally who have donated or supplied plastic lids for the exhibition: the pupils of Wallace Hall Primary and Penpont Primary, Thomas Tosh and Drumlanrig Cafe. Thanks also to Mark Vernon for various types of electrical cable!
