Helene Nymann, Still from Whether We Are, 2016 16:9 Hdv (10:52 min with sound).

I am extremely excited to announce the opening of my co-curated project, The Map is Not the Territory! I have the absolute privilege of working with seven other brilliant female curators in creating this project, under the direction of the wonderful Sarah Demeuse. Our team makes up nine women from various countries and regions around the world.

This exhibition examines the construction of representation through socially and lawfully imposed, arbitrary boundaries. The aim is to interrogate discrepancies between reality and belief in response to the current ubiquitous use of non-sequiturs in the public arena. Conceived at the dawn of an unprecedented, divisive presidency, the exhibition upholds the spirit of resistance against misrepresentation and commandeering of identities in our history and contemporary culture.

Curated by: Lux Yuting Bai, Piper Ross Ferriter, Jacqueline Kok, Noelia Lecue, Amanda Lee, Jasa McKenzie, Birdie Piccininni, and Natalia Viera Salgado under the direction of Sarah Demeuse

Artists: Brittany Cassell, Kate Gilmore, Martine Gutierrez, Ann Hamilton, Camille Lee, Anh Thuy Nguyen, Helene Nymann, Bita Razavi, Melanie Reese, Roberto Vega

The opening reception will be held Friday, April 21 from 6–9pm in the Pfizer building at
630 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn.
The exhibition will be on view from April 21–May 14.

Open hours:  Saturday & Sunday 12-6pm and weekdays by appointment
If you have any questions or wish to schedule an appointment to view the exhibition, please get ahold of us at MapNotTerritory@gmail.com
