Curated by Toronto-based artist Joy Walker, this exhibition includes the work of Anna Lindsay MacDonald, Gwen MacGregor, Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay and Flavio Trevisan.
Conventional maps contain universal symbols and keys, icons that people will recognize as streets, parks, monuments, etc. These markings help get us from one point to the other.
You Can’t Get There From Here presents four artists who have adapted map iconography to present visual memories and experiences, fabricated from non-traditional map-making materials. These personal maps contain recollections and perceptions of a place and how the individual connects to his or her environment.
The exhibition runs from Saturday, January 24 to Sunday, March 8, 2009 at York Quay Centre at Toronto’s Harbourfront.
