Jason Peters: Reverse Polarities
January 23 - May 1, 2011

Mapping: Memory and Motion in Contemporary Art
October 3, 2010 - January 9, 2011

Maps have been drawn since prehistoric times. Today, with the advent of GPS and Google Maps, they have infiltrated daily life more than ever before. In an era of global culture, artists are increasingly exploring maps as both image and cipher. Mapping: Memory and Motion in Contemporary Art features paintings, works on paper, sculptures, videos, a sound installation, and a live web terminal to address such themes as borders and boundaries, identity and colonialism, journeys—both real and imagined, memory and nostalgia, and tourism and travel.
