Cartographies is a video-exhibition that ´ace organizes at its headquarters on Calle Conesa in conjunction with the Centro Argentino de Cartografía in celebration of its 56th Anniversary during the month of November 2011.
This is a call that extends its borders to Ibero-American artists by inviting them to present works that explore cartographic representations in the visual arts from multiple perspectives. Thus, the gaze of contemporary artists makes the term cartographies refer us to various concepts that go beyond the mere literality of the representation of a territory.
We also speak of identity, of footprint, of memory, of testimonies, of mental or imaginary maps and of multiple meanings that are opened from their connection with art.
Cartographies is part of a project started in 2008 that is part of our mission to give visibility to Argentine and Ibero-American artists and to promote crossings with artists in residence at ´ace as well as between different artistic practices.
The selected artists will participate with their works in digital format at the nite on Wednesday, November 9 at 7:00 p.m., together with the inauguration of the “mega international exhibition of miniature artist’s books” MIMB I and MIMB II that acts as a cartographic metaphor / map of various cultural identities.
