Curated by Katharine Harmon with Jessie Braden

Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents You Are Here NYC: Art, Information, and Mapping, an exhibition of New York City maps and cartography-based artworks. You Are Here features a selection of contemporary artists, designers, and data analysts who address a question that is surfacing in the art/design zeitgeist: in what forms can information visualization become art, and how can artists make data visible? Together, the works in this exhibition show a melding of information visualization and artistic endeavor.

The exhibition features three commissioned pieces by Christine Gedeon, Ekene Ijeoma, and Doug McCune, that are based on census information about immigrants in the city, as well as a range of existing artworks in multiple media forms.

Other featured artists, designers, and data analysts include: Kim Baranowski; Alexander Chen; Xingying Du, Michelle Htar, and Jessica Silverman; Nicholas Fraser and Heidi Neilson; Neil Freeman; Daniel Goddemeyer, Moritz Stefaner, Dominikus Baur, and Lev Manovich; Jill Hubley; Bettina Johae; Jerome Marshak; Christopher Mason/MetaSUB team; John Nelson; Jenny Odell; Perkins+Will / Quilters without Borders; Erica Sellers; Herwig Scherabon; Chris Whong.      

You Are Here – NYC: Art, Information, and Mapping is guest-curated by Katharine Harmon, author of You Are Here: Personal Geography and Other Maps of the Imagination (2003), The Map as Art: Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography (2010), and You Are Here–NYC: Mapping the Soul of the City (2016), with Jessie Braden, co-founder and director of Pratt Institute’s Spatial Analysis and Visualization Initiative (SAVI).
