There's a Map for That

by Eduardo Alexander Rabel
As objects and as subjects, maps hold a special appeal for contemporary visual artists, in that they portray data in a distilled graphic form, using color, line, and symbols to communicate information that helps us find our place in the world. A smart, thought-provoking little show at ArtCenter/South Florida offers viewers a glimpse into how seven artists approach the broad subject of mapping—from the spatial to the temporal, and from the external to the internal.

Grounded Fantasies

by Elizabeth Tracy
In The Flying Carpet, the husband and wife team of Pip and Duane Brant combine their talents and interests – she is a musician and fabric artist and he a sculptor and potter.  At the Art Center, their collaboration has produced a sophisticated exhibition of four interactive, kinetic sculptures that critique socio-political issues like the Iraq War, foreign oil dependency, and women’s labor rights.
