DESCRIPTION

An Atlas is a traveling exhibition of artists working with “radical cartography”—a practice that uses maps and mapping to promote social change, and that is part of a cultural movement linking art, geography and activism. The participating artists, architects and collectives play with cartographic conventions—geographic shapes, wayfinding symbols, and aerial views—to take on issues from globalization to garbage.
