Map Art Exhibition in Dayton, Ohio: Constructed Territory
Constructed Territory, an art exhibition by “artists who incorporate maps, cartography, and topographical examination into their work,” runs until January 9, 2011, at Wright State University’s Robert and Elaine Stein Galleries in Dayton, Ohio.
This exhibit will feature 32 artists working in photography, digital and mixed media, sculpture, drawing, printmaking and book arts. As a system of diagramed information, maps define locations, orient the viewer, graph terrain, and delineate borders. Maps traditionally present regions of space, which are transformed into condensed descriptive visual references. Borrowing from the universal language of maps and cartographic techniques, the artists in Constructed Territory examine and redefine the established conventions of our understanding and connection to place.
