JACQUELINE HOANG NGUYEN | Challenge for Change series, National Film Board of Canada
Alfredo Jaar

YOUR WORDS MOVE is an on-going screening series at CAMPLE, the starting point for which is an album of world languages compiled in Thornhill in the 1870s by Dr Thomas B Grierson using a donation of language samples from the Bible Society. The album, now in Dumfries Museum, features an extraordinary array of languages from across the globe, many now severely endangered.

Over autumn 2017 and spring 2018, we will be delighted to host artist Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen (Canadian, lives in Sweden), as well as to show two beautiful existing works: Susan Hiller’s The Last Silent Movie, 2007, followed by Alfredo Jaar’s film Muxima, 2006.

We are grateful to The British Council Collection for enabling the loan of The Last Silent Movie, and to Alfredo Jaar and Galerie Lelong, New York for facilitating the loan of Muxima.

There are no upcoming events.
