‘THE MOON: A VOYAGE THRU TIME’ MIXES MODERN ART WITH MASTERWORKS @ THE AGA KHAN MUSEUM

Who isn’t transfixed some nights when they look up to see a full silver or orangey moon. It’s magic, and you can see it without causing eye damage.  For this exhibition the AGA KHAN MUSEUM, 77 Wynford Drive in DON MILLS has assembled works from prestigious institutions in London, New York, Cleveland, Cambridge, Oxford, Ann Arbor, Rotterdam, Toronto – and from the Aga Khan collection itself.

A highlight is ‘MOON’, a giant sculpture created by contemporary British artist LUKE JERRAM. It features detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, and includes sound by BAFTA-winning composer DAN JONES.  The sculpture measures five metres in diameter and it would take 40 people standing shoulder-to-shoulder to circle it.

The AGA KHAN MUSEUM is a work of art itself. Tours can be arranged, and the museum’s DIWAN restaurant has developed an excellent reputation. ‘The Moon’ continues until August 18/2019.  Website – http://www.agakhanmuseum.org
