A Wes Anderson Exhibition Is Coming To London To Commemorate The Release Of His New Film

If you’ve been falling head over heels down the rabbit hole of TikTok’s latest Wes Anderson trend (I know I sure have!), then here’s a pop-up exhibition that you will definitely not want to miss. Ahead of the cinematic release of the writer and director’s eleventh feature film, Asteroid City, a Wes Anderson exhibition will land in London to immerse guests in the world of the new movie. And tickets are on sale now!

The exhibition will focus on Asteroid City (sorry Fantastic Mr. Fox fans!), which takes place in a fictional American town out in the desert, around the middle of the 1950s. The story revolves around a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention that is “spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events”. Take a look at the official movie trailer to see the wonderfully Anderson-esque aesthetic that awaits!

Doors are set to open on June 17, just in time to whet the appetite for the movie’s release on June 23.  Tickets are priced at £15pp, with under-12’s getting in for free and concession tickets running just £9.

What to expect

The exhibition comes courtesy of a partnership between Universal Pictures UK and 180 Studios. Original sets, props, miniatures, costumes, and artwork from the film will immerse guests in the 1950s desert landscape of the film. Throughout, installations will also surround visitors with the visuals and sounds of the movie.

Visitors will also get the chance to dine out at the fictional 1950s diner featured in the film, the Luncheonette. We’re expecting some pretty iconic American fare, and some gorgeously aesthetic décor and food.

Naturally, there will also be plenty of limited-edition merch with which you can flaunt your love of the film and director. Among the choice merch will be t-shirts, totes, screenplays, and even a vinyl record with tracks “Dear Alien (Who Art in Heaven)” and “You Can’t Wake Up If You Don’t Fall Asleep”.

Where to see the Wes Anderson exhibition

The Wes Anderson Asteroid City exhibition will take place at 180 Studios at 180 The Strand. Previously, 180 Studios was also the site of exhibitions for Anderson’s The French Dispatch film and Isle of Dogs.
