Included in this show is Joseph Popper’s ‘One Way Ticket’ which has been featured on this blog before and the rocket was last seen at the V&A in London last year. An events program accompanies this very comprehensive exhibition, check on the Baltic site and if your are adventurous this is definitely worth a trip to Newcastle between now and the 29th June 2014. I shall report on this show and what to see in Newcastle, so more soon, watch this space.

A group show exploring the enduring presence of the moon and the rich iconography of space on the popular imagination of artists. With reworked stories and imagined realities, ideas and tropes from science fiction, mixed with conspiracy theories and an interest in fictional restaging, the exhibition illustrates differing global perspectives of the moon and reworks its prevailing image on our collective imagination.
They Used to Call it the Moon brings together artists from Pakistan, Croatia and the UK working in film, photography, sculpture and collage. BALTIC 39 will also provide a platform for ideas and discussion where scientists, environmentalists, astronomers, artists and writers will share their knowledge and experiences in relation to the future possibilities of the moon.
