From May 18 – October 28, “Mind the Map: inspiring art, design and cartography will draw on the Museum’s outstanding map collection to explore the themes of journeys, identity and publicity.”
The exhibition showcases today’s leading artists as well as the work of those that have passed.
Some of the artists include:
Harold McCready (passed)
Frederick Charles Herrick (1887-1970)
*The works shown above are meant to showcase the artists in the exhibition, not the exhibition itself!
“The displays will explore geographical, diagrammatic and decorative transport maps, as well as the influence of the iconic London Tube map on cartography, art and the public imagination…Looking in particular at the relationship between identity and place, Mind the Map will explore the impact maps have had on our understanding of London and how they influence the way we navigate and engage with our surroundings.”
