Counter Mapping

October 16, 2021 — January 22, 2022

516 ARTS / 516 Central Ave. SW, Albuquerque, New Mexico

516 ARTS will present an exhibition and public programs on the subject of map art, with a focus on “counter mapping.” Conventional Western mapping has been historically used to track, register, and achieve land appropriation and exploitation. Today, with processes such as gerrymandering, mapping still has an important role in the current political, social, and cultural systems. “Counter mapping” refers to efforts to map against dominant power structures. The concept for the exhibition is to investigate how different ways of tracking and mapping affect the meanings and perceptions of places, and to reflect upon the power structures that define those representations. The exhibition will critically engage with historical forms of mapping and the elements of power and culture that characterized them.
