Love fades, everything dies, but the moon looms forever in our imaginations. Organized to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing, a new show at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, in Denmark, examines how the earth’s satellite has served as a point of fascination and inspiration for artists, thinkers, writers, and scientists across human civilization. Below, we present a selection of images from the exhibition, which runs through January 20, 2019.
