Gallery A

Mike Buchel -Winds of Spring.jpg
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 a selection of works from the Peregrine, Νουα, and Polaris collections, covering  only a small fraction of the total works archived by the Lunar Codex.

Highlights of this gallery include works from The Windrift Collection, whose collected works are thematically linked by figurative realism with a strong sense of narrative.
 

These narrative-charged works include not only works on canvas and paper, but include sculptures, constructions, installations, assemblages, and more.
