One Giant Leap
49 Court Street
Favorite Color has brought us 50 foot long lizards and HG Wells inspired time machines. Fairy tale giants and rumbling prehistoric volcanoes. But this may be their boldest journey yet. In 2019, the artists who have brought us crowd-pleasing favorites for five years running ask, ‘Why can’t a century old bank be retrofitted as an intergalactic space transport?’ No reason at all, it turns out. Prepare yourself for an express dash to the furthest reaches of our galaxy and a story so big, it can’t possibly be contained by an earthbound projection festival. Black holes? Cosmic rays? Extraterrestrial backpackers with floppy antennae? Don’t worry. You’ve got ten-thousand other earthlings with you in this floating, zero gravity savings and loan. Somebody must have brought their ray gun, right? Well, if worst comes to worst, there’s always the self destruct button. 50 years since humans first set foot on Luna, LUMA celebrates humanity’s pluck and all the and all the frontiers still to come.
