'One Way Ticket to Mars' brings together works by a variety of designers, architects and artists which explore our relationship with Mars.

Included in the exhibition is a 'Spot Painting' Hirst prepared for the Beagle 2 space mission in 2003. Beagle 2 was originally thought lost, but in 2015 NASA images revealed it had successfully landed on Mars, making Hirst’s 'Spot Painting' the first artwork on another planet.

Other contributing artists include Jan Fabre, Carel Willink, Tom Claassen, Luke Jerram and Edith Dekyndt.
