Exodus by JCU lecturer Dr. Robyn Glade-Wright: A Fragile Beauty, Coral Bleaching and Heat Stress

Exodus by JCU lecturer Dr. Robyn Glade-Wright is now on display on the first floor of the Cairns campus library.  As Robyn writes in her artist’s statement, “Exodus is an artwork produced in response to the silent and largely unseen loss of life of a significant part of the once majestic reef.”  The display is a representation of coral bleaching, made from found objects washed up on the seashore and from Robyn’s garden.  For a full artist’s statement visit: http://www.jcu.edu.au/soca/milestones/JCU_137002.html

JCU Library and Information Services can be contacted for use of common space areas for exhibitions or book launches read The Library Exhibitions Guidelines by emailing infohelp@jcu.edu.au. Management can then evaluate the suitability of timing and space requirements.
