Polygraphs is a group exhibition, centred around Abstract by Hito Steyerl, which explores truth, fiction and evidence in a complicated world.

About

Artists are often witness to a changing global environment and their role within that is to document, ask questions and create layers of meaning to engage audiences with current international discourses.

Polygraphs is drawn from Glasgow Museums’ Collection and includes artists who interrogate dominant historical narratives about our connections to the arms trade, colonialism, the slave trade and feminism. It poses questions about the relationship of museums to the histories, identities and politics that they reflect and by redisplaying older works alongside more recent pieces the exhibition reactivates truths and fictions still relevant today.

The resource space and public programme for Polygraphs has been developed in conjunction with graphic designer Neil McGuire and Cyber-Crannog
