A neat explanation of maps in contemporary art


Ana Holguin has provided a succinct and powerful interpretation of the place of maps in one contemporary artist’s work. As she writes, “Frohawk Two Feathers’ commentary on authenticity and archives as it forms in this production of false-ish history is complex, revisionary, and playful.” The maps work with a variety of other images and constructed artifacts to play with the constructedness of history and identity.

I don’t know when Two Feathers’ work will be displayed in Maine, if ever, but it seems to be worth looking out for.
