Lunar Attraction - On view October 15, 2016 to September 4, 2017

As Earth's closest celestial body and only natural satellite, the moon has engaged our curiosity and imagination over millennia and across cultures. Contemporary artists use the moon as both a source of inspiration and investigation. Lunar Attraction features artworks and interactives that explore our longstanding fascination and connection with the moon, ranging from myths about the connection between werewolves and the full moon to the gravitational pull that controls Earth's tides to the 21st-century international race to build a base on the moon.

Lunar Attraction features works by Michael Benson, Adam David Brown, Craig Dorety, Fred Espenak, Foster + Partners, Sharon Harper, Beth Hoeckel, Mike Libby, Scott Listfield, Vera Lutter, Greg Mort, Takashi Murakami, Young Sook Park, Adrien Segal, Reel Water Productions, Sputniko!, Peter C. Stone, Brian Thomas, Philip Weber and Joseph Wheelwright. 

Susan and Appy Chandler, the East India Marine Associates and the Art & Nature Committee of the Peabody Essex Museum provided support for this exhibition.

Many things brought from one climate to another

NOW – JUNE 2016

The art on the fifth floor is a selection of the AGO's recent acquisitions of contemporary art. The title is taken from a 1981 work by American conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner. Like many other artists from the 1960s to the present, Weiner creates art using language, resulting in artworks that have no physical form but appear instead on gallery walls, in spoken word and in printed matter. In this context, Weiner's statement offers a framework for this display, connecting artworks from across vast distances to provide a snapshot of current artistic thinking. The works of art on view reveal how these international artists navigate the complexities of contemporary life, while also asking us to consider the diverse textures of present-day experience, the lingering effects of the past and the challenges we face in creating more equitable societies.
