Suzan Hoeltzel and Yuni Villalonga are  the curators of  Contemporary Cartographies, an exhibition at the Lehman College Art Gallery, that looks at the ways artists are using the visual language of maps to explore their ideas. For some of the artists in the show,  maps are a format to organize information, while others use the concepts of mapping to tell a personal narrative or invent imaginary places. Others use maps themselves as the materials for their artwork.

Whether it’s an old map on the wall or the GPS in your car, all the artists in the show ask us to expand the way we think about maps and to consider how mapping can provide new insights into our politics, memory, personal relationships and culture. This week on the show we speak with Susan Hoeltzel and Yuni Villalonga about their exhibition Contemporary Cartographies.
