Phoenix exhibit displays the ‘power of maps’

Posted

The Pueblo Grande Museum has opened a new exhibit that highlights the Zuni world.

A:shiwi A:wan Ulohnanne: The Zuni World will be on display through Sept. 17 at the museum, 4619 E. Washington St., Phoenix.

On loan from the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center, the art is used as a means for mapping, and it has “become a metaphor for the power of maps,” a release stated.

“Maps act as a physical expression of one's place in the world and the universe.” 

Over time, the Zuni world has been remapped, with names changed, boundaries drawn and cultural presence erased, according to the release, and “The Zuni World exhibit challenges these assumptions through 31 artistic representations of Zuni maps and places in the Southwest.”
