Summary

To mark the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, a group of artists made work for an exhibition Promised the Moon, shown at the ANU School of Art & Design Gallery from 20 June – 26 July 2019. The exhibition was curated by Dr Ursula Frederick and highlighted the Australian Capital Territory’s unique space heritage and the Canberra region’s connections to the Apollo missions and lunar landings.
