The Martin Art Gallery at Muhlenberg College is pleased to present What's the good of Mercator's North Poles and Equators? Curated by Alastair Noble.


This exhibition presents six artists that are engaged in mapping through intensive research of either the land or sea or both but without conforming to any “conventional signs” other than those they have invented. In this case the artist’s tabula rasa transforms into a personal meditation on place, evoking both palpable and mythological sites presented through varied media.

Works on display include US and international artists David Faithfull, Cathy Lane, Paul Martin, Brian Nissen, James Walsh and Chris Welsby, and the exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog and essay by the Curator.
