Today is the first day of the new exhibition here at Iniva,
Whose Map is it? New Mapping by Artists. The exhibition features nine contemporary artists from across the globe exploring new approaches to mapping in this exhibition of film, installation, print and audio.
Mapping is certainly the hot topic at the moment, with Crossing Boundaries a multi-disciplinary symposium taking place today at the Royal Geographical Society, as well as current exhibitions such as Magnificent Maps at the British Library.
The Library team have researched this field and we have produced a special bibliography in support of the Whose Map exhibition. This bibliography is a fantastic starting point for researchers, academics, artists exploring the field of mapping and cartographies, as well those that are interested in discovering more about the theory and practice behind some of these current mapping exhibitions. You can download a copy of this bibliography here. All these materials are available in the Stuart Hall Library and are part of our special display of mapping resources shown below.
Come visit the Stuart Hall Library to find out more about the artists involved in the current exhibition, as well as related exhibitions and multi-disciplinary texts regarding mapping. Also please do visit the Creative Mapping blog with further links to artists who work with maps.
