Event Details

Space’ celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first-time man stepped on the moon.  Opening on the anniversary date, 20 July, this exhibition examines humankind’s longstanding fascination with space and space travel.

This major exhibition explores the romance of space through visual culture produced during and after the moon landing.

These works span the furthest reaches of the human imagination to the reality of space travel.  Original photographs from NASA of the moon landing take pride of place, together with works from contemporary artists who respond to the romance and unknown of space.

With works from over fifteen artists; together with astronaut’s photographs and space hardware, this engaging and timely exhibition will make you feel part of the global celebration of man’s explorations in space.  Each piece will help build a comprehensive understanding of our cultural fixation with space through art.  Gippsland Art Gallery is pleased to present this exhibition, bringing art and science together in a celebration of the fascination humans have always shared of the stars, planets and the night sky.
