The Katonah Museum of Art (www.katonahmuseum.org) welcomes curator Sarah Tanguy along with artists Doug Beube, Josh Dorman, and Paula Scher for The Place We’re In, a revealing discussion on the allure of cartography in contemporary art.
Offered in conjunction with Mapping: Memory and Motion in Contemporary Art, which is curated by Ms. Tanguy, this event will take place on Thursday, October 28 at 7:30pm at the Museum. The Place We’re In is free to members and students and $10 for non-members. For more information and to make reservations, call (914) 232-9555, ext. 0 or email [email protected].
Sarah Tanguy www.sarahtanguy.com is an independent curator and critic based in Washington, DC. She is the adjunct curator for International Arts & Artists www.artsandartists.org as well as a curator in the ART in Embassies Program http://aiep.state.gov. Tanguy has developed over a hundred exhibitions since 1983 and has written for The Washington Times, Sculpture, New Art Examiner, Glass, American Craft, Metalsmith, Hand Print Workshop International, Turning Points, Mid-Atlantic Country, Baltimore, and Readers Digest.
Artists Doug Beube, Josh Dorman, and Paula Scher all use mapping imagery to expose the underlying chaos found in actual maps. As evidenced in their work, each artist uses mapping strategies to plot uniquely personal routes that are fanciful, interpretive, or politically driven. In The Place We’re In, Tanguy will probe the artists’ individual techniques and methodologies for a deeper understanding of mapping as medium.
