On The Map exhibition

50%_poster_map_6 copyWelcome to the On The Map exhibition from CollectConnect artists. Earlier this year publisher we commissioned 12 new maps from a group of exciting contemporary artists. Each map was designed to be printed as an A3 fold out sheet with 4 supporting pages on it’s reverse side.

There is an inherent beauty in maps, like the Dwell book that proceeded this exhibition maps are a 2 dimensional rendering of a 3 dimensional form. They are often interpretations of the real world in a graphic light with motifs and lines that help us find anything from roads to windmills.

Artists are natural observers and organisers who like categorise through visual means. This map exhibition gives us the chance to see the world around us through the eyes of 14 artists from around the UK.

The artists were asked to consider 3 criteria.

Their map should be set in the real world, somewhere in the UK.

That it should include a route which could be walked.

The walking of the map shouldn’t cost more than £10 (train fares, entrance to museums, lunch)

Sampson Low Ltd have printed them all in colour at an A5 (21×14.8cm) size with an A3 fold out map incorporated. They will be selling the maps at an affordable £2 (+ Postage and Packing) so that anyone can try one of these artist’s walks or frame them on their wall.

Bill Mudge
Melanie Ezra and Rose Davies
Bryan Benge
Robert Good
Peter S Smith
Dean Reddick
Tahira Mandarino

The Cambridge Blue Plaque Walk is a two hour circular walk that visits 21 of Cambridge’s Blue Plaques celebrating famous names like John Maynard Keynes and Sir Jack Hobbs and notable achievements such as the discovery of DNA.

9780953471287The full colour map highlights the route but allows you to wander off at any point and re-join the trail. There is also a spotter’s guide, to keep children and the eagle-eyed amongst you entertained throughout your journey.

This walk was originally created as part of the Art Language Location festival in 2014 by artist Alban Low. Alongside the 21 established Blue Plaques, Low invited nominations for everyday plaques that celebrated the unsung personalities and events of Cambridge. He printed these as magnetic plaques and placed them throughout the city with help from a keen group of walkers and art enthusiasts. You can see all 50 overleaf and maybe a few still remain on lampposts and railings along the route.

Cambridge_Blue_Plaque_walk_Alban_LowArt Language Location (ALL) is an art festival taking place over two and a half weeks in locations throughout Cambridge, featuring 50 innovative and experimental contemporary artists from across the UK and beyond who use text in their work.

Each artist must find an appropriate venue for their work: the resulting intervention creates a conversation between artist, artwork and location. This extended exhibition aims to punctuate the city with a series of visually exciting and unexpected encounters in which our everyday interactions with text can be explored and challenged.
