"Mapping the Monochrome"
Some people think of maps as quaint objects from the pre-GPS age. But in the hands of Argentinian conceptual artist Horacio Zabala, maps are a means of exploring social-justice issues that reverberate all over the map.
See nearly 40 of Zabala’s works — including maps, monochromes, sculptures, and site-specific works created from the 1970s to today — in the “Mapping the Monochrome” exhibition opening Wednesday at Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 North Central Avenue. It continues through March 12, 2017. But there’s good reason to see it sooner.
Zabala leads a free tour of the exhibit, with Vanessa Davidson, the museum’s curator of Latin American art, at 7 p.m. on October 19. Space is limited. So while the tour is free to attend, it’s best to RSVP in advance through www.phxart.org
