The Moon Gallery is an exhibition platform developed for defining and promoting the evolution of an aesthetic organism on the moon. The three main components of the Gallery are  Research, Collaboration and Archive. 
Research: Directed toward the development of context , informative materials and structure for the promotion of a call for artistic submissions. 
Collaboration: Implementation of the online creative tool and website designed for collecting submissions and showing a realtime evolution of the ‘aesthetic organism’. 
Archive: Dissemination of an online resource of images and artist proposals 
Goal: A selection of works fabricated into an actual material installation on the moon surface in the 10 x 10 x1 cm grid format as soon as 2022.

The Moon Gallery is inspired by initiatives in the late 60's and early 70's such as The Moon Museum, a small ceramic wafer three-quarters of an inch by half an inch in size, containing artworks by six prominent artists from the late 1960s, and most notably Fallen Astronaut, an 8.5 cm aluminium sculpture by Paul Van Hoeydonck that was placed on the moon by the crew of Apollo 15.

Current inspiration for the Moon Gallery are experiments in space such as the BioPan project at ESA.

 
We very much look forward to seeing you at the 1st Moon Gallery show November 16 at ESTEC and developing this initiative further towards its goal of placing art on the Moon.

Best regards,
Alexander, Anna, Bernard
