Every map is a cultural construction that geographers, scientists, and artists alike create to make and convey meaning. The World According to the Newest and Most Exact Observations focuses on the human body and the political geography of the northeastern North America through maps, atlases, and scientific models from the 16th century to the present. These are combined with the work of eighteen contemporary artists whose installations, paintings, photographs and sculpture expand notions of how and why we map.
