A blog dedicated to the creative use of maps in art or how to map information creatively. All in all we are dedicated to showing map art.
I visited the Perelman Building annex of the Philadelphia Museum of Art this past weekend. We were there briefly because it was close to closing hour. I tucked into a small gallery on the run and found a small show of artworks with the theme of mapping but it is not listed on the museum's webpage.Here is a list of most of the artists:Rirkrit Tiravanija,(Further East) 1999. The object was a parasol with a map of their cross country journey drawn on it; Julie Mehretu, Entropia, 2004 Screenprint and litho; Richard Long, Dorset Song Lines, 1991, printed text; Susan L. Moore, Fidelity, 2002, Platinum print;and Rafael Ferrer, Map 1974, crayon, graphite, mylar, map.I just thought that I would share.
