Men on Maps
“Men on Maps”
Curated by Barry Kostrinsky
Opening Reception: Friday, September 5, 5-9pm
What do you think of when you see the New York City subway map?
Is it a guide, a diagram, a riddle? Is it a canvas?
“Men on Maps” explores the unique aesthetic responses of over 50 male artists when presented with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s map of the New York City subway system as a base upon which to create: the blank canvas is replaced with a loaded image for each artist to interpret and transform.
Various mediums including audio, collage, drawing, painting, photography, video, and other forms fill both Gallery I and II.
