Uncharted Territories

June 5, 2009 - August 1, 2009

Uncharted Territories investigated themes of abstract cartography, adventure, the relationships between personal and physical exploration and the human need to discover. Work presented in the gallery by Vermont artists Clark Derbes and Wylie Sofia Garcia charted personal journeys, invoked roadmaps and topographical maps and called for audience participation to reassemble and interact with the work in an act of personal re-mapping. Massachusetts artist Ted Ollier led the audience out of the gallery using Global Positioning Devices to locate and create works of art throughout the city and the surrounding environs using a unique variation on the outdoor treasure hunting sport known as “geo-caching". In the tradition of geo-caching, participants were encouraged to take something and leave something behind from each location.
