Here at Juxtapoz HQ we were incredibley sad that were not able to make the opening of Tom Sachs' newest exhibtion Space Program: Mars. Watching some of these videos that Sachs' released in coordination with the show like, How to Sweep and the newest one we came across Love Letter to Plywood is only making it worse.

Tom Sachs' newest exhibition at first glance might seem like a glorified space camp that someone is trying to call art, but understanding Sachs' style and mentality we realized that this is in an incredible exhibition not to be missed. Sachs' will be occupying the 55,000 square foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall creating an immersive installation that is reminiscent of the Apollo Program but will be focused around Mars.

Leading contemporary artist Tom Sachs has always had a fascination with space and space travel. We just didn't know he was going to create, with Nike, a Mars Yard Shoe, or an entire line of Nike gear to be worn when you are planning a trip to Mars. Just planning, not going. As Sachs notes on his site, "These shoes are built to support the bodies of the strongest minds in the aerospace industry." While they plan things.
