Pivoting around a critical revision of cartography, this exhibition unpacks issues of colonialism, extraction and commodity routes between Europe and Latin America.

About

Gone to Ground’s satellite exhibition 'Mapping Terrains' in the Albert Sloman Library, pivots around a critical revision of cartography, providing historical context to the routes and circuits implicit in many of the artworks in Gone to Ground. This show further unpacks issues of colonialism, extraction and commodity routes, placing Latin America and art from the region in the matrix of world ecology. Curated by the BA Curatorial Studies student, Beatriz Neviana Coslovsky, in collaboration with Dr Sarah Demelo, curator of the University of Essex collection of art from Latin America (ESCALA), Mapping Terrains creates new and exciting dialogues between ESCALA and the Albert Sloman Library’s Special Collection.
