New York City, NY
Pop. 8,175,133New York is thought to be the cultural capital of the world and persists as one of the most influential and populous metropolitan areas to date. The city’s make-up consists of five boroughs that span 305 square miles. Its prime location of the coast of the Atlantic ocean made it the gateway for immigrants coming into America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and it still holds onto this diversity.

  • Project Dates: June 24, 2010 – August 27, 2010
  • Exhibition: Experimental Geography at The James Gallery, The Graduate Center at City University of New York
  • Collaborating Partners: Independent Curators International
  • Notes: This version of NPA was produced in the same building as the Center for Place, Culture and Politics headed by the renowned geographer David Harvey who has been a significant influence on this project. CUNY Graduate Center is one of the most affordable and rigorous science and social science doctoral programs in the country and provided an ideal audience for NPA by displaying the collected maps outside of the gallery in their administrative hallways throughout the course of this exhibit.
