Now in its fifth year, the Annual Steven Campbell Trust lecture comes to Glasgow for the first time. Introduced by journalist and broadcaster Edi Stark, the lecture will be given by Campbell’s friend and collaborator, artist Ron O’Donnell.

O’Donnell is one of Scotland’s finest contemporary narrative photographers; he and Campbell collaborated on the 2002 Portrait Gallery exhibition celebrating poet Edwin Morgan’s 80th birthday. Reflecting on O’Donnell’s own practice, the lecture will develop the connections Campbell made in his work to other art forms, artists and writers, looking in detail at his use of collage.

This year’s lecture will be preceded at 6pm by a screening of two short films about Campbell in CCA’s Cinema. Both events are free and supported by the Steven Campbell Trust and CCA.
