RE:search is an exhibition featuring Glasgow-based artists Jonathan Meuli, John Robertson and Jonathan Wade in dialogue with Prof Paul Soler and Prof Aidan Robson of the University of Glasgow and CERN, Geneva, Switzerland.

The work incorporates themes from astro-physics, earth-sciences, waves, evolution, quantum theory and the processes of scientific methodology.

The scientists will be discussing their own work in particle physics and responding to the art work in a wider-ranging conversation about creation and creativity in science and art.
