You Are Here

November 30 & Dec 1, 2007

You Are Here: A two day conference featuring Contemporary Artists working with mapping and tactical media. With Center for Land Use Interpretation, Matt McCormick, Institute for Applied Autonomy and Nato Thompson.

The map is a device of multiple powers. What happens when this device is purposely redirected by artists? Currently there is tremendous momentum amongst the fields of art, activism, geography and cultural studies. For example, associating the fields of cartography and art can lead to new forms of tourism, overwrite official boundaries with local ecologies, expose governmental secrets and generate new ways of experiencing and understanding our physical environment.

Co-presented by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and the Aurora Picture Show, curated by Bree Edwards
