Artists are taking one giant leap in these three exhibitions

July 20 marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landings and to celebrate, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre is launching a month of lunar-themed arty events, including three new exhibitions. In Astronaut, artists such as Adam Norton, David Haines and Joyce Hinterding consider the world of space exploration from the perspective of the astronaut, exploring the impact of space travel on the body and the sounds of space. Future takes inspiration from the films and posters of the “space race” of the 1950s and 1960s and examines how contemporary artists such as Christelle Hug, Michael Cook, Clinton Gorst and David Greenhalgh have created their own futuristic visions. Finally, Under the Same Moon explores cultural beliefs, myths and legends surrounding the moon, and features works by artists including Daniel Boyd, Guan Wei, Hedar Abadi and Leanne Tobin.
