the cosmic sublime

join us at The Collective Old Oak to explore the depths of the universe, learn about space telescopes and hear the stories behind astronomical photographs like Hubble’s Ultra Deep Field and the Pale Blue Dot, as popularised by Carl Sagan. how are these photographs created, and how do they help us to reflect upon our own existence?

Marek Kukula is Public Astronomer at Royal Museums Greenwich, home of the Royal Observatory and the Queen’s House art gallery. in 2015 he co-curated the exhibition dark frame/deep field at Breese Little Gallery in London to coincide with the New Horizons probe’s fly-by of Pluto. the exhibition showcased a number of works by contemporary artists alongside vintage NASA photographs, highlighting our ongoing desire to explore and map the cosmos
