Description

Far Out
Suits, Habs, and Labs for Outer Space

July 20, 2019–January 20, 2020
Floor 6

Fifty years since the first footsteps on the Moon, the exploration of the cosmos remains irresistible, and the ambition to establish commercial space travel and planetary settlements continues to capture the imagination. Far Out: Suits, Habs, and Labs for Outer Space celebrates the visionary ideas and ingenious solutions from architects, artists, and designers who dared to imagine life far out among the stars.

In parallel to the advances of a booming space industry, artists and architects are reckoning with the social and cultural effects of our cosmic quest. Extraterrestrial conditions amplify the challenge to design for space travel, and new research and technologies are making what was once science fiction a reality. This exhibition presents realized and conceptual designs for space suits, habitats, and laboratories alongside a selection of film and visual art, including designs from Rick Guidice, Raymond Loewy, NASA, Neri Oxman, Tom Sachs, and others.
