Lize Mogel is an interdisciplinary artist who works with the interstices
between art and cultural geography. She creates and disseminates
counter-cartography-- maps and mappings that produce new understandings of
social and political issues. Her work connects the real history and
collective imaginary about specific places to larger narratives of global
economies. She has mapped public parks in Los Angeles; future territorial
disputes in the Arctic; and wastewater economies in New York City.
Lize is co-editor of the book/map collection "An Atlas of Radical
Cartography" and co-curator of a related traveling exhibition which toured
internationally. She has worked with groups including the Center for Land
Use Interpretation and the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest. Exhibitions
include the Sharjah (U.A.E.), Gwangju (South Korea) and Pittsburgh
Biennials, "Greater New York" at PS1, and "Experimental Geography". She has
lectured about her work at numerous venues nationally and internationally
including the Whitney Museum, the New Museum (NYC), and the Royal Danish Art Academy (Copenhagen). She has received grants from the Jerome Foundation, the Graham Foundation, the LEF Foundation, and the Danish Arts Council.
