Green Art Gallery is pleased to announce upcoming exhibition Map ≠ Territory, featuring works by Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Rossella Biscotti, Bady Dalloul, Cian Dayrit, Shadi Habib Allah and Christine Rebet, opening 15 September.
Map ≠ Territory, subtly complicating linguist Alfred Korybski’s incisive phrase with a mathematical sign, unites the work of six artists who plumb the complex question of mapping today—a time of ongoing post-colonial fallout, elusive resources, invasive tech, and intensifying surveillance. Rather than literally mapping, these artists reflect on the various (and sometimes urgent) strands of inquiry the fraught map/territory relation continues to encompass.
