South Facade
University of Glasgow

John Gerrard’s Flare (Oceania) 2021 is a compelling synthesis of climate and ocean issues. In a pioneering use of real-time simulation, Gerrard responds to a statement from Tongan artist Uili Lousi, whose ancestral ocean is changing due to climate-heating emissions being created elsewhere in the world. 

The artwork will be shown as a large-scale LED wall at the South Facade, University of Glasgow from:

  • 13:00 – 19:00, Friday 5 November
  • 10:00 – 20:00, Saturday 6 November

Presented by The Hunterian and the University of Glasgow, and supported by Art of Change 21 and Schneider Electric Foundation.
