Saturday, the 20th - Radstorm/Anchor Archive Resident "Lying With Maps" Opening

Lying With Maps Opening

Radstorm/Inkstorm/AnchorArchive resident, Reece Steinberg, is holding an opening of prints highlighting current and historical maps that are used to manipulate public opinion. Come before the punk show (www.facebook.com/events/270403426491729/) on Saturday Sept. 20 (8pm and beyond) to take a look at the prints, get a free mini-zine about the maps the prints are based on, and eat some snacks.

About Lying With Maps

Misleading maps manipulate public opinion in a variety of subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Lying With Maps is a series of prints inspired by maps that have helped to make a Canadian oil pipeline look safe, erased Labrador, diminished the size of Africa, and committed other intentional and politically motivated inaccuracies
This series manipulates and exhibits maps that continue to sway public opinion and inform a collective subconscious. The inaccuracies in the maps are neither accidental or unavoidable, but are created for political and financial gain.
