SPACE AND TIME TRAVEL
If you thought you had science fiction pinned down, think again.
The Barbican Centre’s “Into the Unknown: A Journey through Science Fiction” encompasses literature, contemporary art, film, music, comic books and video games to provide a new perspective on one of pop culture’s most beloved genres. The exhibition takes viewers to strange lands and virtual universes through four chapters: Extraordinary Voyages (featuring Jules Vernes’ original manuscripts and drawings), Space Odysseys (including props and models from Aliens, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Star Trek), Brave New Worlds (think television clips from 28 Days Later) and Final Frontiers (yes, clips from Doctor Who and Back to the Future). We’re definitely bringing our lightsabers to this show.
