A Portrait of Sir Geoff Palmer at Inverness Museum and Art Gallery
Inverness Museum and Art Gallery presents A Portrait of Sir Geoff Palmer, a moving film portrait of the renowned human rights activist and scientist, Professor Sir Geoff Palmer OBE, created by Scottish artist, Graham Fagen.
The show runs from 07 October to 25 November 2023.
In this compelling 19-minute video, Graham Fagen captures Sir Geoff’s story and indomitable spirit as he talks about his life, from growing up in Jamaica to becoming an esteemed academic in Edinburgh. Fagen’s portrait breaks the boundaries of what we think of as traditional portraiture and, in the words of the artist, ‘attempts to expand our perceptions of portraiture in the age of the selfie.’ A Portrait of Sir Geoff Palmer was commissioned by National Galleries of Scotland.
