October 5th - 26th
Opening reception: October 12th, 6-9 PM
NARS Main Gallery

The Map and the Territory is a group show featuring multiple New York-based artists of varying backgrounds. Each of them has rediscovered both the geographical and conceptual notions of maps, as well the powerless and absurd nature of territories. In presenting the glories and defeats of intercultural communications, the show explores the boundaries between the accessible and the inaccessible, the seen and the unseen. Ultimately, to question the reality that we live in.

Featuring: Alicja Gaskon, Meir Gal, Mark Amerika, Mitch Patrick, Joyce Kozloff and Bonam Kim.
