The 2023 Culture on Campus exhibition celebrates the life and work of one of the most distinctive British filmmakers of the 20th Century. Born in Bangalore, India, in 1923 Lindsay Anderson reflected British life and society through the lens of a series of remarkable films including This Sporting Life (1963), O Lucky Man! (1972) and If…. (1969), a poetic and surreal vision of revolt and rebellion at a public school, and one of the key British films of the 1960s. The exhibition marks the centenary of Anderson’s birth by opening up the extensive collection of his personal and working papers held in the University of Stirling Archives. The exhibition will provide an archival journey through Anderson’s filmmaking career tracing the documentary grit, Hollywood glamour and critical struggles of a life lived behind the camera. It will feature previously unseen documents and photographs from a unique cinematic collection. The exhibition will be accompanied by events and screenings which will provide further opportunities to find out about Anderson’s career and celebrate his work. Culture on Campus is a collaboration between the Art Collection, University Archives and the Macrobert Arts Centre which aims to develop a creative environment where creative thinking and creative acts are at the heart of our identity as a place of learning.
