Tom Sachs's sculpture of a space suit, complete with a wooden shotgun slung over the shoulder.

The process in making a sculpture is just as important as the finished piece for Tom Sachs. It’s an educational undertaking for him as he explained in a 2011 interview with Intermission Magazine. One can imagine his knowledge in space travel given that the topic is one that he revisits frequently. The public will have a chance to witness these learnings as Sachs takes over 55,000 sq ft of space inside the Wade Thompson Drill Hall in his new exhibition, Space Program: Mars. The exhibition will include performances when his sculptures will be utilized to reenact rocket launches and interplanetary travels to Mars. Watch the Michel Gondry-esque trailer produced to promote the exhibition. Space Program: Mars will be on view for four weeks starting this Wednesday, May 16.
