Gaia by luke jerram

22 April - 10 July

Visitors will be able to gaze upon the Earth as if from space, without ever having to leave the atmosphere. The awe-inspiring art installation, called Gaia, is by the same artist who first brought Museum of the Moon to Melbourne in 2018. For the first time, this stunning artwork is being displayed in an indoor setting in Australia, suspended in the central crossing of the Cathedral.
