Moon Gallery FUTURE PAST opens the countdown to the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. The show marks the beginning of the Year of the Moon celebrated internationally and at SPACE EXPO – the official visitors center of the European Space Agency at Noordwijk with exhibits on space, gravity & satellites. Future Moon missions require public engagement and putting together the brightest ideas from different cultures and backgrounds. This is what Moon Gallery aims to stimulate.
Moon Gallery intends to send 100 artworks to the Moon within the compact format of a 10 x 10 x 1 cm plate on a lunar lander planned to be launched in 2022.
The show will exhibit the submissions from our first open call and inhabit one quarter of the gallery featuring 25 artists. This is the first experiment producing a collaborative artwork to shape Moon culture. Gallery ideas to be sent to the Moon will be shown within the context of 100 objects that already went to Space. At SPACE EXPO the PAST meets the FUTURE instigating intrigue and inspiration for space exploration TODAY.
