Johnny Adimando "To the Moon"

“To the Moon”, works on paper by Johnny Adimando (Critic, Printmaking) and curated by Lucas Spivey will be on view at 17Cox Gallery in Beverly, Massachusetts January 23 – March 23, 2012 with an opening reception on the First Quarter Moon, January 30, 5 – 7 pm. An Artist Talk with Johnny is scheduled for New Moon, on February 21, 5 pm and a Performance Lab w/ the Collective will take place at Full Moon on March 7, 5 – 7 pm.

At its apogee the Moon is about km from the Earth, while a single sheet of paper is about 0.01 cm high.  It would take approximately 1,520,640,000 stacked pieces of paper to reach the Moon or a single sheet of paper folded on itself 42 times could reach the Moon’s surface. Adimando will attempt the impossible: to reach the moon through conventional methods of paper folding and printmaking. Click here to read more.
