Raise the Alarm

Glasgow School of Art - Reid Building
164 Renfrew Street
Glasgow G3 6RQ

Raise the Alarm is a day-long deep listening and deep viewing programme of screen-based and audio only works from interdisciplinary artists who make art in response to the natural world and the climate emergency, curated by Martel Ollerenshaw.

Illustrating that artists are in a unique position to reflect and contextualise the world and to make us think deeply about its wonders and its fragility — the programme includes audio-visual works by Mella Shaw (Sounding Line), Hanna Tuulikki (Seals’kin), Dark Quiet collective Madeleine Flynn, Jenny Hector & Tim Humphrey (Dark Quiet), Ross Little (Mìle Dorcha | The Dark Mile), Diana Chester, Damien Ricketson & Fausto Brusamolino (Listening to Earth), Claudia Molitor & Jessica J Lee ( and David Harradine (It’s the Skin You’re Living In).

Audio only works include those by Susan Stenger (Sound Strata of Coastal Northumberland), Alaya AngHussein Mitha & Cindy Islam (Plotting (Against) The Garden), Claudia Molitor & Jessica J Lee (A Thousand Words for Weather) and Genevieve Lacey (Breathing Space).

Raise the Alarm explores our environmental and cultural engagements and predicaments and shows how artists are developing and extending the application of these concepts in their practices, to reflect one of the major concerns of our time.

The deep viewing and deep listening programme will be supplemented with artists talks, so that we can hear first-hand, the rationale behind the artmaking.
