About this Event

Planetary & Luke Jerram's Museum of the Moon

January 23, 2020

  • Opening Reception: 6.30PM
  • Remarks: 7:00PM

From stars and planets to nebulae and blackholes, to the highly personal and nostalgic relationships we share with this iconic city landmark, the Centennial Planetarium is an endless expanse of inspiration in Planetary - Contemporary Calgary's first exhibition in our new home featuring 36 Calgary-based artists.

In conjunction with Planetary, Contemporary Calgary is pleased to present UK artist Luke Jerram's Museum of the Moon, a scale model of the Moon measuring six metres in diameter and featuring 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. Suspended from the top of our 13m high Dome, the luminous Museum of the Moon offers an uncanny and powerfully emotive experience. Heightened with musical compositions created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones, Contemporary Calgary will also present a series of lunar inspired events beneath the Moon.

Please RSVP.
