20 July 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing. This major exhibition is programmed to coincide with this significant milestone, and brings together artistic responses to the celestial body that orbits the Earth.
For centuries artists from many cultures have been inspired by the Moon, the most prominent feature of our night sky. The Moon includes historical works created when the moon could only be viewed from afar, works from the era of the 1960s space race, and more contemporary responses informed by the imagery and scientific knowledge acquired through space exploration.
