Map Exhibition Asks Viewers to Question Everthing
Artists' use of maps to make a political or social statement have been highlighted here before. An exhibit at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts takes a comprehensive look at art work which incorporates cartography.
"Lines in the Earth: Maps, Power and the Imagination" explores the way mapping is used to explore social, cultural and political geographies. Some of the featured artists use maps to rearrange the world; others use them to explore the way that maps reinforce political power; while others use maps to create their own imaginary worlds.
The exhibit runs through December 7th at the center in Ketchum, Idaho.
