Expanded Map (1) was held in May 2013 with artists Phil Dadson, Amelia Harris, Yolunda Hickman, Thomas Hinton, James Wylie, Gigi Scaria, Paul Janman and Scott Hamilton. We are looking for the residue of this first show to continue into the second. A publication made in conjunction with Index and RM that will bring all the art and artists together will be published and distributed during EM (2), as we wish to include installation shots from the second show.
Maps and mapping are no longer just about geographic features, but have expanded exponentially to include multiple objects and social events, from the galactic and the microscopic, to the transient to the ephemeral. Mapping is increasingly evident in a range of art practices, whether named as such or not.
As part of the exhibition, Balamohan Shingade invites you to join him for Room Yātrā, at midday on Sunday 18 August.
