Isaac’s curated a show on our land this Sunday….

Please join us on Sunday, August 11 from 6-9pm for the opening of A Round World Distorts a Flat Map, which is a group show on a vacant lot in Highland Park. The show, which includes works by Michael Bell-Smith, Jedediah Caesar, Jennie Mary Tai Liu, Shana Lutker, Nancy Lupo, Mungo Thomson and Isaac Resnikoff, is mostly invisible or at least easy to miss. Several of the works emerge at dusk. Some are fleeting, others buried. One never gets here at all.
The show takes its name from some found text printed on the map which Douglas Huebler used to document his 1968 site sculpture Windham College Pentagon. The map, which is titled “The Putney Countryside” includes the following warning:
WARNING
Roads are shifted, houses burn, are abandoned
or rebuilt; a round world distorts a flat map;
man’s memory is fallible; expect not exactness
 

When all is said and done we’ll record the whole thing (or some edited and annotated version of it) in a catalog including contributions from Whitney Hubbs and Lauren Mackler.

After Sunday, you can visit the show by appointment, 215-205-0617.
