LABoral in Gijon presents winning project from production grant
Karlos Gil, The Moon Museum.
GIJON.- The Moon Museum is the winning project of the DKV Seguros – Álvarez Margaride Production Grant, jointly called by the insurance company and LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial in Gijón. The title of the exhibition references a small ceramic chip designed in 1969 at Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), which reproduced six diagrams created specifically for it by John Chamberlain, Forrest Myers, David Novros, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol. The idea behind the project was to become the first moon museum given that, allegedly, a replica of the chip would be left on the moon by the Apollo 12 space mission.

Although unable to check whether it actually took place, Karlos Gil rescued what might have been the first 'Space Art' work in history and captured it in an installation which can be visited at LABoral. The Moon Museum presents a narrative construction through overlapping stories, photographs and memories that, combined with the audiovisual and technological material, will show this secret moon museum, based on a traditional science-fiction story, creating a museum within LABoral.

Karlos Gil (Toledo, 1984) trained at the School of Visual Arts in New York and in the Schools of Fine Arts of Madrid and Lisbon. Since 2008 Gil has been showing his work in group and solo exhibitions in galleries and art centres inside and outside Spain, including Iceberg, Matadero Madrid; Flores; Abismo; Parataxis, La Casa Encendida (Madrid); La condición normativa, La Capella (Barcelona); II Moscow International Biennale, MMOMA, Moscow Museum of Modern Art (Moscow), Les Rencontres Internationales, HKW (Berlin) and Centre Pompidou (Paris); Estación Experimental, CA2M, Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo (Móstoles) and LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial (Gijon) and Colorless Green Ideas, Garcia I Galería (Madrid).
