'Tobacco Flower' is a major installation of new work by artist Jimmy Robert, which focuses in particular on relationships between Europe and the Caribbean. Taking tobacco flower textile designs by Charles Rennie Mackintosh as a key point of departure, Robert explores multiple traces left by Glasgow's role within colonialism.

Working across several mediums, including film, photography and sound, Robert engages directly with The Hunterian and its historical collections in order to examine the cultural framing of identities and desires. Supported by Glasgow International and Goethe-Institut.

Open Tuesday to Saturday 10am–5pm and Sunday 11am–4pm. Closed Monday.
Admission free and by pre-booked timed ticket: gla.ac.uk/tobaccoflower
