GALLERY B

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 B showcases a selection of works from "The Nova Collection" and "The Peregrine Collection", representing only a small fraction of the total works archived by the Lunar Codex.

Highlights of this gallery are works from The Windrift Collection, whose collected works are thematically linked by figurative realism with a strong sense of narrative, as exemplified by the iconic realist artists Alex Colville, Christopher Pratt, and David Blackwood.

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