As humanity expands into the solar system, so will art. Moon Gallery proposes the first permanent extraterrestrial art gallery extending our cultural dialogue beyond Earth, to the Moon and into deep space. For this mission, we are collecting art pieces that carry important values for humanity not only at this point on Earth but also for a future multi-planetary society.
In February of 2022 Moon Gallery will carry out its first space flight aboard NG-17 and dock its artistic payload at the International Space Station. “ISS Payload Gallery” shown in St. Petersburg celebrates this endeavour and exhibits a collection of the first shortlisted artefacts and their prototypes at AIR Gallery before dazzling its very first audience in space.
The exhibition is organised in collaboration with ITMO University – Art Science department. The show will be held between the 15th and 19th of June 2021 in parallel with our GLEX program. The event will conclude with a mini-conference and a workshop instigating dialogue and fueling interdisciplinary exchange between Space Sciences, Technology and Arts. The event is supported by the delegates of GLEX 2021 – Global Space Exploration Conference and IAF (International Astronautical Federation) Technical Activities Committee for the Cultural Utilisation of Space (ITACCUS).
Opening hours: 12:00-21:00 from 15th to 19th June
