Art of Mapping reaches out across the Atlantic

TAG Fine Arts is delighted to join forces with four US and Canada based artists who will be first time exhibitors in the UK next month.   Peter Dykhuis, Dahlia Elsayed, Robert Walden, Heidi Whitman, and the New York based artist Paula Scher, have been invited to show their work in TAG's upcoming exhibition, The Art of Mapping, a survey show celebrating cartography’s potential as an art form, rather than a science.   This first transatlantic collaboration for TAG comes from a year of research into contemporary map making and an investigation into how cartography is in the process of being reimagined for today’s society, with all five artists making a vital contribution to the show. If you're passing through London, do visit the exhibition.  We intend to tour the show in 2012 Stateside.
