Catalogs & Magazines

The Lunar Codex uses digital and analog technology to preserve art, books, music, and more, enclosed in time capsules and launched to the Moon. It is a message-in-a-bottle to the future.

Curatorial Notes

This section documents art and literary magazines archived in the Lunar Codex. Foremost among these are 152 issues of exhibit catalogs and arts & poetry magazines from the GOSS183 publishing house, including Oranges & Sardines, MiPOesias, OCHO, iArtistasHashtag Art Magazine, PoetsArtists, and 33PA

For over fifteen years, GOSS183 has featured  cutting-edge artists and curators, poets and reviewers - avant-garde realistic art at its best and most provocative.

As well as its expansive view of artworks and artists, GOSS183 also publishes interviews, reviews, and poetry books. Dr. Samuel Peralta's poetry chapbook Sonnets from the Labrador - published in 2010 by GOSS183 - was the touchpoint for a remarkably fruitful relationship that has continued to this day, including curating several exhibits with PoetsArtists, 33 Contemporary, and the Wasau Museum of Contemporary Art.

Shelter - indexed elsewhere in the Lunar Codex - appears on this list as an exhibit organized by PoetsArtists and 33 Contemporary but whose catalogue exists only as a lunar edition in the Νουα time capsule.

* Every artist, writer, and collector with art or articles included in the issues shown below are verified as represented in the Codex

Art & Literary Magazines

PA Issue 78 cover.jpg

The Lunar Codex uses digital and analog technology to preserve art, books, music, and more, enclosed in time capsules and launched to the Moon. It is a message-in-a-bottle to the future.

Curatorial Notes

Many of the art works in the Codex were originally shown at galleries over 2015-2021, whose exhibition catalogues were published by Goss 183, or were included in special editions of PoetsArtists (PA) magazine. All were curated by noted figurative artists, gallerists, collectors or art critics in association with publisher Didi Menendez.

Two of these exhibitions, Chronicles of a Future Foretold, and Shelter, was curated by Dr. Samuel Peralta. Shelter is based on a 2020 call for work specifically on the theme of shelter from the global Covid-19 pandemic that began in 2019. 

A landmark exhibition featured in "The Nova Collection", Mars: An Artistic Mission, was hosted by the California Art Club (est. 1909) to commemorate  the landing of NASA's Perseverance rover on Mars on February 18, 2021.

The Codex also features a selection of art from the 15th ARC Salon Exhibition held by the Art Renewal Center (ARC), a non-profit, educational foundation, hosting the largest online museum dedicated to representational art, and leading the revival of realism in the visual arts.

Several private collections and assemblages are also of importance to the Lunar Codex, notably The Windrift Collection and the assemblage of artists of The Bennett Prize®. Artworks from these form the core of the works catalogued in "The Nova Collection" time capsule. We are grateful to these collections for permission to represent these works in the Codex.

* Every artist listed below has at least one artwork represented in the Codex, and many have several pieces of art represented. 

The style is primarily figurative realism, balancing the abstract expressionism of previous art on the Moon. Non-figurative art is still represented, as in the Moon Leaves paintings in Rosario Bitanga's catalogue, and in the prints of Yayoi Kusama.


Works are located as to their respective lunar time capsules as follows: 

IM1 - Intuitive Machines Nova-C Mission 1 to Vallis Schrasöteri (The Nova Collection)

PM1 - Astrobotic Peregrine Mission 1 to Lacus Mortis (The Peregrine Collection)

GM1 - Astrobotic Griffin Mission 1 to the Lunar South Pole (The Polaris Collection)
