“Datascapes: Maps, Charts & Diagrams”
Exhibition on display 1/21/14 – 4/2/14
Proposals due September 20, 2013 (postmarked)
This exhibition will be accompanied by an exhibition catalogue. The need to convey data, statistics, and territory in a creative manner is a challenge embraced by artists who have used data abstractions in the forms of maps, charts and diagrams as the basis for their work. Ideas may include, among other things: looking at how Google Maps have changed perceptions of space, how maps imply a sense of ownership over territory, and the way in which many phenomena are documented and remembered through charts and diagrams. Please see details below about how to submit a proposal.
