Creating an Atlas of Overlooked Cartography for New York City #ArtTuesday

via HYPERALLERGIC

As Joshua Jelly-Schapiro, co-author with Rebeca Solnit of Nonstop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas, told Hyperallergic, “everyone who lives in a city could map it in their own way.” For New York City, that means a possible 8 million distinct geographies for each of its diverse residents. Nonstop Metropolis, recently released by University of California Press as the third in Solnit’s trilogy of American city atlases, features a few of these experiential charts of New York, from “Brooklyn Villages” on the Native American settlements, Dutch villages, and contemporary ethnic enclaves of the borough, to “Mother Tongues and Queens” on that borough’s 800 languages.

Every map is an intense act of creative collaboration, with essays and illustrations in Nonstop Metropolis from over 30 artists and writers. Alongside, the Queens Museum is currently hosting the complementary Nonstop Metropolis: The Remixwhich features related public programming and commissioned installations by artists and book contributors Mariam Ghani and Duke Riley. Six “broadside” maps from the publication are freely available to museum visitors and in nearby communities.
