Juror: DeWitt Cheng, Art Writer and Curator says: Road Maps hopes to survey current art production dealing with the state of the nation and the world in an era of both dizzying development and crumbling neglect, both of which, given current political conditions, appear to be part of the new social contract.
The pieces chosen will bring another provocative and insightful show to the walls of Gallery Route One and hopefully, move the dialogue along.
