Discover Gaia at Mackintosh Queen’s Cross

The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society presents ‘GAIA’ by Luke Jerram – Part of our 50th Anniversary Celebrations.

To celebrate its 50th year, the CRM Society is holding a series of events to mark its anniversary at its home at Queen’s Cross. This is the former church designed by Mackintosh and now operating as a successful venue for music and events such as weddings, concerts, films and talks. Queen’s Cross itself – is one of the most complete original Mackintosh buildings in the city – is a visitor attraction in its own right, drawing visitors from abroad as well as around the UK.

Gaia – named after the Greek Goddess of Earth – will be open to the public from Saturday 13 May 2023 and run until 24 June.

Measuring six metres in diameter, Gaia features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface. The artwork provides the opportunity to see our planet, floating in three dimensions. With each centimetre of the internally lit sculpture describing 21km of the Earth’s surface, which is 2.1 million times smaller than the real Earth.

General Admission (16 and over) includes up to two children per adult ticket bought.

Tickets for GAIA and all our events are available from Eventbrite.
