This event is being held at Southend on Sea – but I thought it would interest people in London.
An exhibition by Maxwell Roberts
Since revolutionising map design in 1933, Henry Beck’s iconic London Underground diagram has set the standard for the mapping of transport network worldwide.
The exhibition explores the success of the Beck map and the rules that it adopted, and asks whether the increasingly complex networks of today demand fresh approaches.
Roberts presents a collection of his own work: maps that are easier to use; maps that teach us about good design; maps that challenge our preconceptions; and maps that are purely decorative.
Runs: Fri 25th Feb to Mon 8th March.
The artist will be “in residence” on 26 & 27 Feb and 6th March.
Address: Campus Gallery, South Essex College of Further & Higher Education, Luker Road, Southend on Sea, Essex.
Thanks to London Reconnections for letting me know about this.
