Urban Culture Project (UCP) invites proposals for participation in an upcoming exhibition project, locate | navigate, revolving around the notion of mapping. Curated by Charlotte Street Foundation Associate Director Kate Hackman, the exhibition component of the project will be presented across two UCP venues in downtown Kansas City —la Esquina and Project Space — January 18-March 8, 2008. Public programs will be planned in conjunction, and a selection of works will be presented as an exhibition in print in the pages of Review magazine, March 2008. In addition, it is expected that this project will extend to other manifestations and elaborations in the future.

locate | navigate will present a series of (broadly defined) maps, privileging highly specific and personal sets of information. It seeks to include “maps” by a diverse cross-section of individuals, from visual artists, musicians, dancers, performance artists, filmmakers, and writers, to architects, landscapers, designers, developers, planners, historians, scientists, librarians, astronomers, teachers, transit specialists, athletes, politicians, collectors, businesspeople, cooks, parents, students, etc., etc.

Individuals interested in participating by submitting maps of their own making should submit a brief statement of interest to Kate Hackman at kate@charlottestreet.org by DECEMBER 1, at which point further details will be provided. Proposals for public programs – talks, discussions, readings, tours, and other events, outings, and projects relating to this exhibition project are also welcome. Also visit www.urbancultureproject.org for more information.
