Mapping Art Valladolid

PRESENTED ON OCT 31, 2013
IN VALLADOLID @ VOL 3

#MappingArt Valladolid es un proyecto creado y diseñado por Marta Álvarez, Laura López, María Nieto, Ada Sánchezy Rodrigo Simón que que repiensa el mapa de la ciudad, advirtiendo de la falsedad de estas herramientas y de la necesidad de repensarlas y rescribirlas no ya como descripciones de lugar sino como descripciones psicosociales y afectivas, que den mejor cuenta de la realidad que trata de representarse.

Su interés es triple: localizar y visibilizar cada uno de los nodos que tejen la red cartográfica vallisoletana en torno al arte contemporáneo; hacer ver la necesidad de una mayor formación en torno arte contemporáneo y mostrar la precariedad real oculta tras el aparente opulento mundo del arte. 

APPLAUD THIS!

Mujer.NODO

BY PEDRO GALLEGO DE LERMA
@ VOL 5 ON JUN 27, 2014

Mujer.NODO toma a las mujeres como puntos de conexión de la red del arte, que se conectan entre sí a través de la red de Internet.

 Pretende así generar todo un contenido discursivo que parta de ellas de manera igualitaria, las dé voz y voto y suponga un nuevo referente que permanezca en el imaginario de todos.

Mata is Meta-Data: Mapping the Anthropolithic Age

BY SOLOMON ENOS
@ VOL 23 ON APR 10, 2015

Solomon Enos received his first commission as a sixth grader, illustrating curriculum for lower grade levels at Makaha Elementary School. From there he illustrated books such as Na Akua Hawai`i (The Gods and Goddesses of Hawai`i), and The centennial edition of The Epic Tales of Hi`iakaikapoliopele to name a couple. Solomon is also known for large scale murals at various public schools and private venues. His most recent project, “Polyfantastica”, has been published and Solomon continues working on another life-long project called “Mata” that he hopes may unify all the global mythologies and theologies into the final human narrative, hosted as an International Public Game, in line with the Public Radio and Television.

The Debatable Lands

BY ZOE CHILDERLEY
@ VOL 5 ON NOV 18, 2017

"You can see how there is an emotional tie to the land and for a lot of people the idea of having a much more solid border going through their landscape was quite a horrific thought."

In The Debatable Lands from PechaKucha Night Galashiels Vol. 5, Zoe Childerley discusses The Debatable Lands of the Anglo-Scots border through photography and mapping based on her artist-in-residency at VARC in Northumberland in 2016.
