“Collective Record” will highlight artists who work with the notion of mapping, through differing methods and subject matter. With our primary association to the use of mapping to geographical plotting out a place, this exhibition also expands to include artist interpretations of these geographical depictions. In this interpretation, mapping can become a tool to reconstruct lost memories from a traumatic event or utilized as a form of record-keeping. Here the notion of mapping also becomes a visual archive to record the change of a city through its natural progression and decay, as a way of mapping out a place, its changing spaces and its disappearing history.
