Lize Mogel


"Lize Mogel is an interdisciplinary artist who works with the interstices between art and cultural geography. She creates and disseminates counter-cartography maps and mappings that produce new understandings of social and political issues. Her work connects the real history and collective imaginary about specific places to larger narratives of globalization. She has mapped public parks in Los Angeles; future territorial disputes in the Arctic; and wastewater economies in New York City. Her recent projects rethink popular representations of the world as it is shaped by global economies. Lize inserts and distributes cartographic projects into public space and via publications.
"She is co- editor of the book/map collection 'An Atlas of Radical Cartography' and co-curator of the traveling exhibition 'An Atlas'. She has worked with groups including the Center for Land Use Interpretation and the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest. Exhibitions include the Gwangju (South Korea) and Sharjah (U.A.E.) Biennials, PS1 (NYC), Casco (Utrecht), and 'Experimental Geography' (ICI, touring). She has received grants from the Jerome Foundation, the Graham Foundation, the LEF Foundation, the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Danish Arts Council for her work."
