//Announcement and call for entries//

Photocartographies: Tattered Fragments of the Map
Submission Deadline: March 31, 2009
Exhibition Opens in Los Angeles on May 16, 2009

Photography and cartography are entwined in similar processes of subject orientation that structure our experience of social, environmental and virtual landscapes. A map is not a representation so much as a system of propositions. This exhibition reveals mapping itself as a generative process of knowledge creation, a liberatory method for re-imagining and re-imaging our world, its built and natural environments, and the relationship between space and place.

Independent curators Adam Katz (Los Angeles) and Brian Rosa (Mexico City) seek submissions of 2D images and artworks that play with the map as an epistemological tool. Appropriate work includes cartographies that use photography as well as photographs that employ a cartographic vocabulary (location, territory, scale). The exhibition will emphasize an interdisciplinary approach to a broad spectrum of visual culture – we welcome submissions from social scientists, urbanists, and designers as well as artists.
