The Map is Not the Territory: Parallel Paths — Palestinians, Native Americans, Irish

map-webThe catalogue for The Map is Not the Territory: Parallel PathsPalestinians, Native Americans, Irish is available nowIt records the touring art exhibition, conceived by Jennifer Heath and co-curated with Dagmar Painter.

Featured in this catalogue are the powerful artworks of 39 contemporary artists, along with nine essays by scholars and art critics Aisling B. Cormack, Valerie Behiery, Phoebe Farris, John Halaka, Valentin Lopez, Rawan Arar and Nessa Cronin, as well as a foreword by Painter and an introduction by Heath.

“Given the current climate around the Middle East, and especially around Israel’s predations in Palestine, few in the world of the arts have had the courage to approach the subject, or the intelligence to approach it reasonably. This exhibition and publication make amends for such omissions, and do so with fierce integrity.”

— LUCY R. LIPPARD, writer, art critic, activist and curator, author most recently of Undermining: A Wild Ride Through Land Use, Politics and Art in the Changing West
