To The Moon by Laurie Anderson and Hsin-Chien Huang

Saturday, July 20–Sunday, July 28, 2019


Immerse yourself in this limited-engagement presentation of To The Moon, a virtual reality experience by award-winning New York artist Laurie Anderson and co-creator Hsin-Chien Huang. To The Moon uses images and tropes from Greek mythology, literature, science, science-fiction space movies, and politics to create an imaginary and dark new version of the Moon. During the 15-minute experience, the viewer is shot out from Earth, walks on the surface of the Moon, glides through space debris, flies through DNA skeletons, and is lifted up and then tossed off of a lunar mountain.

Recommended for ages 12 and up.

Please note, your reservation does not include Museum admission. You may purchase tickets in advance online or onsite at any ticketing desk.

Join Laurie Anderson for a live talkback with Museum astrophysicist Jackie Faherty on Sunday, July 21, at 2 pm.
