Imaginary Coordinates was inspired by antique maps of the Holy Land in Spertus’ collection. The exhibition juxtaposed these maps with modern and contemporary maps of this region, all of which assert boundaries. It brought these together with objects of material culture and artworks that explore ways of charting spaces, fostering conversation, and imagining new communities.
Participating artists included: Ayreen Anastas, Yael Bartana, Mona Hatoum, Noel Jabbour, Sigalit Landau, Enas Muthaffar, Michal Rovner, and Shirley Shor.
Imaginary Coordinates was Spertus’ contribution to Chicago’s citywide Festival of Maps. Curated by Rhoda Rosen.
