You Are Here - NYC: Art, Information, and Mapping
Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents You Are Here – NYC: Art, Information, and Mapping, an exhibition of New York City maps by a selection of contemporary artists, designers, and data analysts, showcasing a melding of information, visualization, and artistic endeavor. Using cartographic concepts, contributing artists and information designers will consider the place on the map where information visualization is an artistic endeavor, and where artworks convey information.
The exhibition features three commissioned pieces by Christine Gedeon, Ekene Ijeoma, and Doug McCune, based on census information about immigrants in the city, as well as a range of existing artworks in multiple media forms.
You Are Here – NYC: Art, Information, and Mapping is guest-curated by Katharine Harmon, author of You Are Here: Personal Geography and Other Maps of the Imagination (2003), The Map as Art: Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography (2010), and You Are Here–NYC: Mapping the Soul of the City (2016), with Jessie Braden, co-founder and director of Pratt Institute’s Spatial Analysis and Visualization Initiative (SAVI).
