"Moon Museum is a small ceramic wafer three-quarters of an inch by half an inch in size, containing artworks by six prominent artists from the late 1960s. The artists with works in the "museum" are Robert Rauschenberg, David Novros, John Chamberlain, Claes Oldenburg, Forrest Myers and Andy Warhol. This wafer was supposedly covertly attached to a leg of the Intrepid landing module, and subsequently left on the moon during Apollo 12. The moon museum is considered the first Space Art object." #WarholCaixaForum #MoonMuseum #Apollo12 #Warhol #RobertRauschenberg #ClaesOldenburg #ForrestMyers #DavidNovros #JohnChamberlain 👨🏻‍🚀🎨

Forrest MYERS (1941 - ) Roulette (E/3) (1965) Alluminio e lacca. 35,56×30,48×25,4 cm. Opera iconica di questo scultore della scuola di 'Park Place' che seppe enucleare le aspirazioni fondamentali di questo gruppo di artisti di New York verso lo spirito della modernità, la poesia dello spazio e la tecnologia appropriata alle nuove creazioni. Il famoso artista di 'land art' Robert Smithson (1938-1973) in un suo saggio intitolato "Entropy and the New Monuments" del 1966 sottolineò come " the Park Place Group... exists in a space-time monastic order, where they research a cosmos modeled after Eisntein. They have also permuted the "models" of R. Buckminster Fuller [1895-1983] "vectoral" geometry in the most astounding manner. Fuller was told by certain scientists that the fourth dimension was "ha-ha", in other words, that it is laughter. Perhaps it is."(in "Robert Smithson: The Collected Writings" edited by Jack Flam, Berkeley-Los Angeles-London, p. 21).

#repost from @themuseumofmodernart

In 1969 #DavidNovros partecipated with other five prominent artists,
#johnchamberlain #forrestmyers #claesoldenburg #robertrauschenberg #andywarhol , at the “The Moon Musem” project, a small ceramic painted wafer which was supposedly covertly attached to a leg of the Intrepid Landing Module and subsequently left on the Moon during Apollo 12.
.
.
. ...When Apollo 12 landed on the moon in 1969, it may have been carrying an edition of this artwork.
...
Forrest Myers, a member of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), invited Rauschenberg, (one of the founding members of E.A.T.) and five other artists to make drawings, which were etched by scientists at Bell Laboratories onto tiny wafer-thin iridium-plated ceramic chips.
When NASA didn’t respond to Myers’ request, Bell Labs scientist Fred Waldhauer asked an engineer to help get the work to the moon. According to Waldhauer, one copy of the chip was covertly attached to the leg of the lunar lander.
....
In addition to Rauschenberg’s straight line, there is a Mickey Mouse-like figure by Claes Oldenburg, sylized initials by Andy Warhol, a black square by David Novros, a computer generated drawing by Myers and a circuit-like diagram by John Chamberlain. .... and Novros’ first Italian show will be in May at our gallery!

This little gem is #TheMoonMuseum from 1969, a lithograph of tantalum nitride film on a ceramic wafer. #ForrestMyers worked with #BellLabs through the #ExperimentsinArtandTechnology program and was snuck onto the #Apollo12 lunar module. It was a vehicle for drawings by #Warhol, #Rauchenberg, #DavidNovros, #Chamberlain, and #Oldenberg. What a bizarre object 🗿🚀🗿🚀🗿🚀🗿 @sfmoma
