Maps in Doubt

Front Gallery

Gwen MacGregor and Sandra Rechico’s paths have converged at the crossroads of the new Mercer Union to present the results of their shared investigation into the recording and mapping of their movements in cities. The show Maps in Doubt is a collaborative installation that critiques widely-held cultural assumptions about the surveying and understanding of our inhabited landscape. Their work questions what it means to map accurately or objectively, interpreting data collected in four cities traversed recently by both artists: Toronto, Montreal, Münster and Kassel.
