The current works exhibiting at AIGA's Philadelphia Space, MAPnificent: Artists Use Maps, focuses on cartography––the study and practice of creating representations of the earth on a flat surface.

Featuring more than a dozen contributing artists, the exhibition reimagines maps. Drawn, dissected, and painted over, each work displayed in the show provides a new look into an old art.

The exhibition, curated by Yulia Tikhonova, challenges visitors to question the message behind the paper whether it’s political, territorial, or directional each piece reveals something different. Visit AIGA’s Philadelphia Space, to check out MAPnificent: Artists Use Maps, before the exhibition closes at the end of the month of March.
