Maps Only: Radical Cartography in Contemporary Art   2 comments

Earlier, this year I saw Heather Green’s, “Vermillion Remains” at the museum of  Contemporary Arts, in Mesa, Az. Her exhibit was beautiful and educational and about the Sea of Cortez, Mexico. She used washed up sea glass, designed simple, but elegant containers to hold the history of what the ocean sent back to shore. She painted, printed and gave away at this show.

She is a favorite artist of mine, so I invited her to make a map for Maps Only/2012.  “Yes”, she said she would love to show her work in San Francisco. Her work will require wall and pedestal. She’s private about what she will be working on and may or may not read what others are working on, so as not to be influenced. I assured her every artists map would be radically different from one another, even if she participated in our group system of communication.

If you are following Maps Only: Radical Cartography in Contemporary Art, then you know I am interested in the process. This is it, the process is happening! Heather sent a list of titles she thought might be appropriate for this show and with the addition of only one word, the word, ‘Only’, I chose one of her title choices. I credit her with the name of this show. It is marvelous! You can see more of Heather Green’s work at cartagrafia.com.
