Hey Culture Vultures:
Chazen is having another great exhibit and reception. So let's check it out.
Reception for Marginalia in cARTography, in the Chazen Lobby. Music by The Kat Trio, plus free and tasty refreshments, and a cash bar. Please take my cell number in case you cannot find us: [masked] .
This exhibition explores the visual discourse between marginal artistic images and the maps where they appear, as this marginalia sheds light on the content and purpose of the maps, their authors and patrons, and on the historical period when they were made. The exhibition also explores cartography as an art form, with a focus on the representations in the map margins.
The exhibition is guest curated by Sandra Sáenz-López Pérez, an art historian who specializes in the iconographical analysis of maps and the artistic interest of historical cartography.
Preview reception Thursday, February 27
6:30–8 p.m.: Live music, refreshments and a cash bar.
