Mahnmut, over at Worm's Sci-Fi Haven wrote:Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition World’ Premiere Weekend: Oct. 22-24, 2010 at Seattle’s EMP|SFM

New traveling exhibition to feature three full-size spaceships, costumes and props from the original and reimagined series

Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum (EMP|SFM) is proud to announce its latest exhibition, Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition. Organized by EMP|SFM and in partnership with Universal Cable Productions and Syfy, Battlestar Galactica features three stunning, full-size prop spaceships, iconic costumes, new exhibition films, music and other props from the original and reimagined series. Battlestar Galactica opens to the public Oct. 23, 2010 and runs through March 4, 2012 at EMP|SFM in Seattle.

“The museum is honored to be organizing the first exhibition devoted to both series,” said Brooks Peck, Curator of Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition. “Battlestar Galactica is one of those rare science fiction shows that appeals to a wide range of people because it combines high adventure with very personal drama. It explores what it means to be human, and has a lot of fun doing so.”

Opening weekend (Oct. 22-24, 2010) will include museum member and public events with some of Battlestar Galactica’s most popular personalities.

“Over its four season run on Syfy, Battlestar Galactica became an iconic series that not only entertained, but fulfilled the promise of all great science fiction. It provoked us into examining our world and ourselves through its politically-charged, socially-relevant, religious and technological themes,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Syfy, and Co-head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. “It is an honor for us to partner with EMP|SFM in this one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience BSG in an up-close and personal way.”

The exhibition will be presented in the Milestones Gallery on EMP’s third level. Battlestar Galactica will become a traveling exhibition in 2012 after its premiere at EMP|SFM.

About Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition:

Battlestar Galactica is an epic drama of interstellar proportions. The last vestiges of humanity flee a cybernetic Cylon horde, traversing the stars in search of the fabled promised land of Earth. The setting of Battlestar Galactica may be rife with spaceships and inhuman adversaries, but ultimately the show is a complex narrative about how we attempt to retain our humanity under desperate circumstances. The series acts as a science-fictional lens through which to examine difficult questions that we may encounter in our own lives.

Exhibition sections:

Creation of Battlestar Galactica: Explores the genesis of the two versions of the show (1978 and 2003) and introduces the story and central conflicts.

The Search: Focuses on one of the central elements of the shows, the human quest to find the lost colony of Earth. The Search is also a spiritual one, as the humans seek meaning in a dangerous galaxy and grapple with issues of religion, fate and freedom.

The Ships: Three life-size spacecraft from the later series—two human and one Cylon— are the exhibition show stoppers. Concept art, storyboards, props and films complement the ships.



Exhibition specifics:

Three full-size (30-feet long) prop spaceships:
Viper Mark 2
Viper Mark 7
Cylon Raider
Series props featuring:
15 costumes
Dozens of props, concept sketches and storyboards
Exhibition films
Interactives:
Music interactives
Human/Cylon identity interactive

That is going to be amazing. I went to the EMP in '05 when they had a huge Bob Dylan exhibit, and also visited the Sci-Fi side of it.

That would be awesome, the only tricky thing for me timing-wise is working it around my girlfriend's school schedule, she'd kill me if I went to Seattle without her.

Bring her ass along then! Really, I am up there quite a bit and pretty much make my own schedule, so with some advance planning I can just arrange to do some work up there and take one of those days off.

Cool, I was just asking her about it and she said something about reading week, which I can never remember when it is. I'll look it up.

I think I won't be going for quite a while, I have to see when my girlfriend's reading week is in the spring semester.

Gods damn it, I missed this. Does anyone have any idea whether it will be on display anywhere else? DAMNIT.

EDIT:, nope, damn it again, apparently I'm not smart enough to look at the "year" portion of the run-to date... anyways, I look forward to going to this within the next year!

Hey Omph, you still want to meet up to go to this? I'm busy until probably middle/late summer, but then I'm, good to roll if any time after that works for you/
