The Map As Art


Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography
This great book is now available in paperback!
It is little surprise that in an era of globalized
politics, culture, and ecology contemporary
artists are drawn to maps to express their
visions. Using a variety of media artists
explore a world free of geographical
constraints.
The book features 360 map related artistic
visions by artists such as Ed Ruscha, Julian
Schnabel, Olafur Eliasson, William Kentridge,
Vik Muniz, and many more for whom maps
are the inspiration for creating art. The
beautiful reproductions and insightful
commentary make this an essential volume
for anyone interested in art and/or maps.
