The exhibition FRANK BOWLING—MAPPA MUNDI (curated by Okwui Enwezor with Anna Schneider) is built around Bowling’s map paintings (1967–1971), and demonstrates how his “use of maps as conceptual objects of painting make for a fitting transactional trope through which to tackle the idea of geography and narrative.”*
FRANK BOWLING—MAPPA MUNDI, through January 7.
