The exhibition includes a group of contemporary artists who use the language and imagery of maps to communicate an array of ideas. They work in various styles—adapting, manipulating, and inventing maps—giving them new meanings. Some use fictional narratives and create imaginary cartographies; others approach the map aesthetically or as material in itself. The works resonate with history, culture, politics and memory. Humor too plays an important role in defining these borders.
Curated by Susan Hoeltzel and Yuneikys Villalonga.
