To celebrate the premiere of Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight exclusively on Disney+ from March 30, Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon will be landing in Australia for three weeks, here at Fed Square.
Measuring seven metres in diameter and featuring 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork that has featured in arts exhibitions and festivals around the world.
Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight brings a never-before-seen Marvel Super-Hero to the screen. Starring Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke, the series follows Steven Grant, who discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and must navigate his complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.
At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.
Over its lifetime, the Museum of the Moon will be presented in a number of different ways, both indoors and outdoors, so altering the experience and interpretation of the artwork. As it travels from place to place, it will gather new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.
The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. Each venue also programmes their own series lunar inspired events beneath the moon.
Luke Jerram’s multidisciplinary practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations and live arts projects.

When Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life, he discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector.
