The Art of Maps
If you're into cartography, there are two new exhibitions in London to attract your interest. Magnificent Maps: Power, Propaganda and Art opened at the British Library on Friday and continues until 19 September (title link). Creative Compass opens at the Royal Geographical Society, Kensington, on 6 May and runs until 2 July. "Artists Agnes Poitevin-Navarre and Susan Stockwell use maps and mapping to explore a range of issues such as globalisation and identity." Oh yeah? Looks like lousy dressmaking to me. It's funded by Arts Council England (groan and CLICK). Admission to both exhibitions is free.
