There has always been a need to evaluate, quantify and rationalise our understanding of the world and indeed, the universe around us. Today we have sophisticated means to map subtle changes in real-time not only our complex ever-shifting world but also the inner world of the human physical and mental condition.
The group show ‘Maps’ reflects this obsession; responding to the here and now, and exploring ways of representing the spatial, cultural and personal.
Scene’s upcoming exhibition explores work from artists, designers and architects in various media and with varying interpretations of the brief. The exhibition will run alongside a programme of talks, workshops and events exploring the importance of mapping to creative disciplines, and its relevance to our culture today.
The exhibition will be held at 70 Paul Street, London EC2A 4NA, 7th – 16th May 2015.
