GALLERY A

A MANIFEST FOR THE MOON

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

Gallery A showcases selected works from "The Nova Collection" and "The Peregrine Collection" of the Codex. Highlights of this showcase are works from the Collection Dérivent.

While including works from a number of artists from around the world, Collection Dérivent focuses on figurative realism with a strong sense of narrative, centered around works by three iconic Canadian artists - Alex Colville, Christopher Pratt, and David Blackwood.

David Alexander Colville (24 August 1920 – 16 July 2013), signing as Alex Colville, is the foremost Canadian painter and printmaker of high realism.  His works are included in the National Gallery of Canada, and the Museum of Modern Arts in the U.S.

Christopher Pratt (b. 9 December 9 1935), is a celebrated printmaker and painter whose influential architectural compositions - depicting buildings, watercraft, interiors, and landscapes - verge on the minimalist and abstract.

David Blackwood (b. 7 November 7, 1941) is known for his visual storytelling, cast in intaglio prints, that depict life on the edge of the Labrador Sea, including lighthouses and mummers, seafarers and shipwrecks, encounters with icebergs and whales.
