Republic of the Moon

  • 16 December 2011 - 26 February 2012

Imagine living on our closest celestial neighbour. In this new exhibition, seven international artists declare a 'Republic of the Moon' and offer their visions for lunar life. Curated by FACT and The Arts Catalyst, Republic of the Moon presents major new commissions by Agnes Meyer-Brandis and artist duo WE COLONISED THE MOON, plus works by Leonid Tishkov, Andy Gracie, Liliane Lijn and Sharon Houkema.

Come and explore their ideas: from a remote lunar habitat for mythical "moon geese", to an immersive encounter with the smell of the moon, DIY astrobiology experiments and the tale of a man who met the moon (and stayed with her for the rest of his life).
