Maps of Northern Ireland are often used to illustrate traditional political divisions, but they conceal a much more nuanced and interesting place. This landscape, rural and urban, is much more than a site of conflict. The exhibition showcases a dozen map-makers, each taking a very different look at the places we think we know so well. These map-makers are local historians, activists, artists, geographers and urban planners, all interpreting our surroundings in different ways. Together, they cover the ground from Donegal to Down to Armagh. Mapping Alternative Ulster re-thinks our representation on maps.
Exhibition Runs 6 Dec 2016 until 31 Jan 2017
