Join visual artist Julie Mehretu and The LP Executive Director Kemi Ilesanmi for an intimate chat and Q&A to discuss the ways Mehretu’s work explores displacement, migration, urban development, and, of course, mapping.
Radical Mapping: Making Meaning in our Communities (April 15 & 16) is a virtual public program exploring how Black, Indigenous, and POC communities can creatively use practices like cultural asset mapping, cartography, and archiving to invest in and make meaning of our neighborhoods. This three-part event will gather artists, historians, mapmakers, local leaders, and community members. Together, we will learn how mapping concepts and methods can democratize decision-making processes about our neighborhoods' preservation and sustainability.
