Lize Mogel, interdisciplinary artist and counter-cartographer will join students from the College of Arts Media + Design’s MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts Program to discuss her body of work that connects art, map making and cultural geography as well as her experience with arts funding.
Lize Mogel’s work intersects the fields of popular education, cultural production, public policy, and mapping. She creates maps and mappings that produce new understandings of social and political issues. Her work connects the real history and collective imaginary about specific places to larger narratives of global economies. She has mapped public parks in Los Angeles; future territorial disputes in the Arctic; and wastewater economies in New York City. She is co-editor of the book/map collection “An Atlas of Radical Cartography,” a project that significantly influenced the conversation and production around mapping and activism.
Exhibitions include the Sharjah (U.A.E.), Gwangju (South Korea) and Pittsburgh Biennials, “Greater New York” at PS1, and “ xperimental Geography”. She has lectured extensively about her work nationally and internationally, including at the 2013 Creative Time Summit. Lize has received grants from the Graham Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Jerome Foundation, and the Danish Arts Council. She has been an artist in residence at Headlands Center for the Arts and the NYC Urban Field Station, and a Fellow at the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie-Mellon University. publicgreen.com
This residency takes place in conjunction with the ICA/Boston symposium, Artifacts of the Future.
