Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art opens The Map as Art

Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art presents The Map as Art, an exhibition on view September 14, 2012–April 21, 2013.

Tiffany Chung, Berlin Wall Map (Scratching The Walls of Memory Project), 2010; embroidery, metal grommets, buttons on canvas, 33 x 44 1/4 inches; Courtesy of the artist and Tyler Rollins Fine Art, New York.

Inspired by the best-selling book The Map as Art, this exhibition presents artworks that explore issues of mapping—whether conceptually or quite literally—while also examining the personal gesture involved in large-scale works. The exhibition features works by Ingrid Calame, Nathan Carter, Tiffany Chung, Joyce Kozloff, Lordy Rodriguez, Robert Walden, and Heidi Whitman. The exhibition is co-curated by Kemper Museum Director and Chief Curator Barbara O’Brien and Katharine Harmon, author of The Map as Art (published by Princeton Architectural Press, 2009).

The exhibition presenting sponsor is Garmin.
